As one of the biggest tourist spots in Tokyo, Harajuku offers visitors endless consumerist pursuits — it’s certainly not a place for those who seek peace and quiet.

So, what if you need a break from shopping? Just head across the street to Yoyogi Park. The open, serene environment is a refreshing change from the mass of buildings crammed along Takeshita Street, and the locals spend a lot of the summer relaxing in its tree-filled spaces. If you’re still after a little action, though, Yoyogi Park is also popular for its multicultural festivals.
