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.

  • Great to see full bloom of cherry blossom from the bridge of Meguro river. and you can see them lighted up at night!  more »
  • 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.
