Meguro River, Tokyo

(4.3/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Illumination always had turned to gold. "Blue cave" too hyped too, annoying nearby residents moved to Shibuya. This year is "revived in gold" and no I miss everyone. But it was the short version of the return around 1 km. Nevertheless the Meguro River is clean.

  • Cherry trees are blinding shined in the illuminations of gold. I thought spring cherry blossom, winter, illumination and entertaining, it's a nice spot, seen in every different color lights for different views, so I'm glad it is.

  • 川邊兩岸的櫻花盛開時,美到令人嘆為觀止,即便是到了晚上,精心安排的燈光照射下,更有另一番風味,可以安排下午時段來逛,這樣可以欣賞到白天與晚上的櫻花. 河岸兩旁的小吃要多慎選,最好還是找店面的會精緻些.
