Why Viewing cherry blossom in Meguro River is special ?
Nakameguro is a beautiful neighborhood in Tokyo with trees of Cherry Blossoms on Meguro River running through it. It also happens to be my ‘home town’ right now. Cherry trees line both sides of the river, starting from Nakameguro Station and running in both directions. During the spring when the blossoms are in bloom Nanameguro transforms from a quiet neighborhood as people come from all over Tokyo to celebrate the Cherry Blossom Festival with Nakameguro’s 580 cherry trees.This weekend they were in full bloom.
What to explore at Viewing cherry blossom in Meguro River?
About 800 cherry trees line Meguro River for several hundred meters and create an amazing sight. However, as a concrete canal, Meguro River does not offer a very natural surrounding for blossom viewers. During the Nakameguro Sakura Festival, the trees are lit up in the evenings.

Tips for you
When sakura is in bloom, it is one of the choicest places to go. Kandagawa river is another one. The rMeguro RIver is lined with sakura trees, both sides. Add to this lantern specifically brought for the hanami (celebration of flowers), numerous stalls selling food, wine, beer, couples, tourists, throngs of people, well, you get the picture. It was fun! I think when the sakura seasaon is over it is a more mundane place. The river is not wide, more like a canal, the bridges are not spectacular, the sidewalks are narrow. Although, I do like narrow sidewalks. I do not mind even occasionally get shouldered by the passers-by. It's Tokyo, after all, lots of people here. Do stroll along the river bank, hanami or not, you won't regret it.
