River

The Meguro River flows through the Setagaya, Meguro, and Shinagawa wards of Tokyo until it reaches Tokyo Bay.
From around the Tokyo Den-en-toshi Line’s Ikejiri-Ohashi Station to Shimomeguro, there are around 800 Yoshino cherry trees lined up along the 4km stretch of river.
During cherry blossom season from late March through early April, the area is packed with people thanks to the cherry blossom festivals and nighttime illuminations.
There are plenty of unique restaurants and shops in the area too, so it’s a great place to take a walk even outside of springtime.

Highlights

  • One of Tokyo’s best cherry blossom viewing spots.
  • In spots where the river is narrow, branches from cherry trees on either side of the river overlap to create a beautiful cherry blossom tunnel (when the blossoms are in bloom).
  • There are many bridges that cross the river, including many unique ones.
  • Many chic restaurants and cafes in the area.
