Despite being located close to Yoyogi Koen, Meiji Shrine Gyoen is in fact part of Meiji Shrine itself and as such is physically separated from Yoyogi Koen by a fence. Meiji Shrine Gyoen may not offer as many sakura trees as Yoyogi Koen, but will however give you a more sophisticated landscape and atmosphere than its neighbouring park with a gorgeous, traditional Japanese garden, a pond and a tea house. Please beware that this place is also not too friendly to tripod-wielding photographers though.
