<Note: there is also a review in English after this Japanese one.> 名古屋市内の地下鉄桜通線または名城線の「新瑞橋」駅で乗り降りするのが一番都合が良いかもしれません。 この他にも桜通線の「瑞穂運動場 西」駅、または名城線の「瑞穂運動場 東」駅からもアクセス可能です。 一番良い時期は間違いなく3月下旬~4月上旬の桜が咲く頃です。 今年の桜はもう終わりましたが来年に乞うご期待! While lots of people tend to go to more popular cherry-blossom sites such as Nagoya-castle and Tsuruma-park, this river and walkways along it are a little off-the-beaten track for non-Nagoyans. It's easily accessible from Aratamabashi station or a station called Mizuho Undojo... More

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.
