During Spring season this river takes everyone's attention because of its beautiful Cherry Blossom trees. During Autumn it quietly flows down and so clean water. During Summer its a place to rest and relax with loved ones. During Winter it becomes cold and freezing. This...More

Nice river which should be visited in March during cherry blossom otherwise you lose the charming effect of the place.

The Meguro River sakura viewing is special because the flowers are lined along both sides of the river. The nearest subway station is Nakameguro station, not Meguro station. A short walk (just follow the crowd) will take you to the river and you will be...More

When we arrived Tokyo, we were able to catch the last few days of the cherry blossoms. The sides of the river were crowded with locals who wanted to enjoy the flowers too. Cherry blossoms line the river and lanterns light it up at night....More

We went to Meguro River at the height of cherry blossom season (1st week in April). We got there early (8:30am) and it was not that crowded. There is a subway stop that is only a couple of blocks away. It's a great walk –...More

We only saw some of the trees with the blossoms getting ready to bloom. Three weeks later this walk would be pretty in Pink with all the Sakura blossoms. The walk along the river was lovely and offered a nice stroll with nature. Any time...More

Despite how crowded it could become on the top Sakura season (March-April), this place is full of good restaurants and good vibe on the streets.

Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.
