Meguro River, Tokyo

4.4
#1 of 23 in Nature in Tokyo
Take a stroll along the banks of Meguro River, a river flowing through the city and into Tokyo Bay. The concrete walls of the river give it the appearance of an urban canal, but the public space either side offers plentiful areas of well-maintained greenery, gardens, and lawns. The river provides a welcome reprieve from the stresses of the capital city, and has become particularly popular for its cherry blossom trees, leaning in and over the water from opposite banks to create a tunnel of blossom in some areas. Our Tokyo holiday maker app makes visiting Meguro River and other Tokyo attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • When cherry blossomises it's a wonder! Super busy day and evening, it remains for me one of the most evocative places to see the cherry blossom (sakura). On both sides of the river you can stroll under the cherry blossoms, stop on a few benches, have a coffee, eat something and even do some shopping. On sakura there are also extra food tracks with Japanese food. Flowering usually takes place in late March, early April

  • Only 15-20 min walk from Shibuya located the very nice area, here there are many cozy shops and restaurants along the river, and it is extra cozy in the evenings.

  • 5 stars spot for Hanami ! I’ve been to many places for Hanami but i think that’s my best memory so far ! The view is just unreal with the lights. There is a lot of stores around so easy to grab some food or drinks and stroll around. It must be a good place to walk around during non-hanami too 😉
  • One of the best places to witness cherry blossoms in full bloom in Tokyo!
