The walk through Yoyogi Park to Meiji Jingu was a lovely walk especially in the late afternoon when the sunlight is streaming through the leaves of the trees. Its a peaceful walk. Visiting Meiji Jingu on New Year's Eve is also a great experience as many Japanese were there to make wishes for the new year. Get your fortune too!
If the excitement of Harajuku leave you craving some zen, head to Yoyogi Park which is located just next to Harajuku station. It's particularly beautiful during cherry blossom season (at the end of March and the beginning of April) and during the Autumn (September to early November).
