Next, I came to the Yoyogi park. The Yoyogi park and Meiji Jingu lie next to each other. Yet the histories were different. The Shinto shrine was built to enshrine the Meiji Emperor in 1920. On the other hand, the Yoyogi park was originally built as a parade ground belonged to the Ministry of the Army in 1909. Unbelievably, the Japanese army once trained in this place which is now the heart of Tokyo.
Even though I stand at the entrance of the park, it is difficult to find the remnants of that time. The atmosphere was just tranquil. A clock was placed there. And a cluster of rockabillies hung out. When I stopped, the music was started. And a man with silver-gray hair started to dance to the music.
