Meguro River, Tokyo

4.3
#1 of 18 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.

  • Each year along the Meguro River cherry trees blossom in unison at the beginning of April. Nice to take a walk while burrowed a tunnel of cherry blossoms during the day, and the night is good to drink while Sakura was lit up all it is. In recent years, more and more people are busy, but come on, beautiful cherry blossoms!

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
