Meguro River (the section off Naka-Meguro station) was a great experience. We could see why it was crowded. There are shops, restaurants and stalls to get food or something to drink. We thought it was cool that they had a CocaCola bottle with cherry blossoms design on it at one of the stalls. My only regret is that we did... More

Though covered with sakura, it is just an average spot for sakura cos not very photogenic and the blossoms are just white in colour. Not worth going

We visited the Meguro river at night to see the illuminated cherry blossoms. The sight was just okay, it was not that impressive. Aside from that, the place is packed and very crowded. If you're pressed for time I would probably skip this area at night.

We were there for Sakura season but still worth the walk from Meguro station or behind the Westin Hotel. There are parks, art galleries and interesting restaurants nearby. Good for early morning runs or cycling also. The Local art galleries are interesting and even the 2 Starbucks with the bohemian feel.....we gad a cherry special menu drink to match the... More

Amazing walks along the canal lined with blossoming cherry trees in April. Do not plan a hanami (piknik), putting down your blanket is not allowed. The NW end of the strip is Nakameguro neighbourhood and also the near by station.

The sakura, despite a weird and late season this year, are currently in full bloom and at the height of their beauty along the Maguro River. My favourite place to start walking along the river is from Naka-Meguro. Take the train to the Naka-Meguro station, exit through the Main Entrance, cross the main road and walk past the Tsutaya bookstore... More

Just a 5 minute walk from the Toyoko station. Strolled along the riverside admiring the hanging Cherry blossom. Absolutely amazing in the afternoon and early evening. Packed but well controlled by security staff and police. Many stalls selling Japanese, Asian, Western cuisine and alcohol Well worth a visit in the first two weeks of April.

Walked here at night and though bustling with people, everything was very quiet. The Sakura was beautiful and everyone was taking pictures. A must see during Sakura season.

Been here twice and delighted both times. The most recent visit, Sakura season. Cherry blossom was on full bloom where whitish pink flowers draped the entire riverside. Along both side of the river, a neighbourhood sakura festival was going on, where people young and old, local and tourist came over to take photo, walked around with a glass of bubbles... More

It is sakura season and if you only have time for one, this is the place...it is magical. We were there at around 530pm and the lanterns were lit. Easy to squeeze in for photos. he bridges along the canal make nice spots for photos, selfies or wefies. By the time we are done with dinner, the bridges were about... More
