Yoyogi Village is an awe-inspiring urban retreat that boasts a verdant garden sanctuary right in the heart of Tokyo. Designed by Wonderwall and a suite of other designers, the leafy spot is situated very close to the JR Yoyogi Station and houses the Code Kurkku restaurant as well as a tranquil garden filled to the brim with lush greenery. Most enviably of all, a massive living wall that can be seen from just about every part of the restaurant brightens and freshens up the entire dining experience. Step in to experience a small measure of the peace that this extraordinary mini village bestows upon the local Japanese.
Once you cross the threshold of Yoyogi Village, the hustle and bustle of Japanese city life quiets down. Just past the glass entry gate, the Code Kurkku restaurant, lounge, and bar is nestled in several white stacked containers wrapped around a beautiful garden – a collaborative effort between Wonderwall and landscape designer Seijun Nishinata.
Inside, daylighting floods the interior and muted nighttime illumination gives the restaurant a soft, welcoming ambience that takes the edge off city life. This combined with a tall living wall visible from just about any seat in the house makes Yoyogi Village Tokyo’s hottest new destination. Looks like a great place to start out the New Year, so if you happen to be in Japan, why not stop on by?!
