Sunday, our second day in Japan started off as every Sunday morning should….McDonalds breakfast. After that Josh and I walked to Meiji Shrine and enjoyed the shade of the tall, cool trees. Meiji Shrine is dedicated to Emperor Meiji and is located right next to (but not connected too, despite what maps tell you!) Yoyogi Park.
Once we finished walking around Meiji Shrine Josh and I headed to Yoyogi Park, which on Sundays is filled with young Japanese people who are being creative and overall having a great time. We witnessed about 200+ young people engaged in a group Karate exercise and even managed to spot the rockabillies….but unfortunately they hadn’t gotten around to singing when we found them. It was a great experience to wander around and see the youth of Japan having fun and enjoying their Sunday afternoon. We also came across a breakdance competition and some kids playing baseball with a plastic bat.
