Hi, let me explain the neighbourhood of one of our house Witt-style Yoyogi.
JR Yamanote line trains stop at Yoyogi. You would expect an active spot in the city center, but Yoyogi is actually a quiet spot, but super convenient since it is located between Shinjuku, Sendagaya (Olympic Games stadium) and Harajuku. These three spots are reachable on foot from Yoyogi. Unfortunately, Yoyogi lost two interesting and popular spots, Healing Café & Bar and Yoyogi Village in 2020. Probably because of Covid-19, but it has not been confirmed. Despite losing these two popular spots, there are still other facilities, which are worth a visit.
Especially the Norengai! A fusion between traditional and modern food restaurants and bars. It is an old block with traditional Japanese buildings just next to Yoyogi station from Showa era (1926 ~ 1989). They renovated the buildings with a unique concept and interior design. For example the Champagne bar which serves Moet champagnes.
Eventhough there is this izakaya neighborhood, Yoyogi is rather peaceful and nice to live. For morning joggings or afternoon walks, you have two beautiful parks to choose from: Yoyogi park (incl. Meiji Jingu garden) and Shinjuku Gyoen. It is a good spot between chaotic urban vibe and beautiful nature.
