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.

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
