What Is the Yōga Station Area Like?
Yōga, located in Setagaya Ward, is made up of a peaceful residential area favored among families. Same as the neighboring station Sakurashinmachi, this station provides great access to Shibuya, which is another reason why this area is so popular.
Within walking distance from Yōga Station is Kinuta Park. Here, you can enjoy all kinds of outdoor events, from picnicking on green grass to viewing Sakura in full bloom, as well as playing on obstacle courses. Not only is the park a great location for families, it’s also great for taking a stroll or for jogging.
Since there are few areas to enjoy lush greenery in Tokyo, this adds another charm to Yōga.

A 6 minute walk from Yōga Station is a hamburger shop loved by locals. They are popular for serving authentic but reasonably priced hamburgers. You can select toppings such as cheese, avocado, and bacon, as well as order an extra patty. Being able to customize your hamburger is the best part. My personal recommendation is their Miso-glazed eggplant burgers.
