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

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

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.

As a resident of Nagoya City, I am happy to live in proximity to one the best sights for Cherry blossoms in Japan. The river is lined with kilometers of the sakura, illuminated beautifully until 9pm (late March, early April when the Sakuras are in full bloom). Morning and evening jogs, dog walking and fish feeding are some of the... More
