TOKYO | Yoyogi Park is one of Tokyo’s largest parks, conveniently located next to Meiji Jinju (Meiji Shrine). It’s actually only been a park since 1967. Prior to this it served many purposes – as main Olympic village and the Yoyogi National Gymnasium for the 1964 Tokyo Olympics, as the “Washington Heights” barracks for U.S. officers during the Allied occupation of Japan, as a military parade ground, and as the site of Japan’s first successful powered aircraft flight.

Today the park provides respite to those in the hectic city that surrounds it. In Spring, people can see the park’s cherry blossoms, and in Autumn its ginko trees turn a vibrant golden brown. People gather in the park, especially on weekends for all sorts of activities. Think music fans, jugglers, comedians, martial arts clubs, cosplayers and other subculture and hobby groups.

For a quieter Yoyogi experience, head to the north and west sections of the park, past the fountain pond and central field, where people lie and relax.

The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences.Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
