Come evening time there are a multitude of small outdoor drinking establishments that serve you your drink and freshly made food to go with it. Luckily there is a lot of shopping to do in the area while waiting for the evenings.

Was there towards the end of Sakura period and the sight was beautiful!!! There were not as much people too. I thought I was going to miss the Sakura but so glad that I managed to catch them!

Went on the last day of March with the Cherry Blossoms in almost peak bloom. We took the subway to Mizuhoundojohigashi Station and walked to just north of Mizuho Park where the Sakuras lining the river seemed to start. And so we walked Southwest from there along the river and it was great.

There was perfect scenery with sakura on the riverside and you also can sit there for a while if it's good weather.

We spend each morning taking a leisurely walk or a pleasant jog along the river. It is flat and easy to maneuver around in a typically crowded culture. Restrooms are located near the Mizuho Athletic Grounds. Take your dog as they are welcome visitors as well.

We went there around the end of March 2013 and sakura (cherry blossom) was gorgeous! Sakura trees line up along both sides of the river. You can take the stairs down and stroll along the river or walk at street level under sakura trees. One thing that I really like about this place is that it's not very crowded (which... More

Be prepared to walk to enjoy the sight of Cheery Blossoms along the river. You can go down to the river [when not flooded] to walk along the river bank. Go in the morning for a cool walk. Try the baked Japanese sweet potatoes - very tasty & inexpensive - sold by old Japanese couple from mobile store. River is... More

Forget all the other parks. The Yamazaki river is the must-go location for viewing cherry blossoms. There are many cherry trees and seeing them in full bloom lined up by the side of the river is a memory you will not forget in this lifetime.
