The Earth Garden Summer Festival (Yoyogi Park) – takes place annually. Great crafts, food and fun activities for kids.  The earthy folk of Tokyo converge on Yoyogi Park to enjoy discovering eco products, organic foods and music. There are over 200 booths that will be displaying products and services to this eco and crafty group. Very fun, and impossible to walk way empty-handed. There is also a very good music line-up and a hammock area to relax in-between your eating and shopping. Kids will defiantly enjoy 1-2 hours wandering the stalls with parents. Also, if you visit at night, the candle-lit stalls are very pretty to view. Also combing with a leisurely walk through Meiji Jingu Park would make a nice 2-3 hour outing.
