It is already 2019 and I can't count the number of runs or walks I have done along Meguro River, from one end to the other, on both sides, through Nakameguro, past its fashion shops, in its eateries, in view of the cherry blossoms or...More

The area is very nice for a stroll, and very convenient from Nakameguro Station. There are lots of nice shops and cafes along both sides of the river. Good for exploring and having a meal.

Nice place to visit in Autumn and during Sakura time for tourists but it is also very nice place during the summer as well. Options to eat are also good e.g. small restaurant named Shapla India is good place to eat Indian curries.

During Spring season this river takes everyone's attention because of its beautiful Cherry Blossom trees. During Autumn it quietly flows down and so clean water. During Summer its a place to rest and relax with loved ones. During Winter it becomes cold and freezing. This...More

The Meguro River sakura viewing is special because the flowers are lined along both sides of the river. The nearest subway station is Nakameguro station, not Meguro station. A short walk (just follow the crowd) will take you to the river and you will be...More

When we arrived Tokyo, we were able to catch the last few days of the cherry blossoms. The sides of the river were crowded with locals who wanted to enjoy the flowers too. Cherry blossoms line the river and lanterns light it up at night....More

Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.

Cherry blossoms and pocket money in Tokyo (9 Replies)
1) I'm visiting Tokyo March 31st to April 2nd, will I be able to see full bloomed cherry trees at their best? 2) Pocket money of 30,000 JPY for 2 and a half days. Visiting Shibuya crossing, Meguro River, Chidorigafuchi, Akihabara, Sensoji Temple, Harajuku, etc.

1) I thought of looking up synonyms for "maybe", "probably", and "perhaps" on thesaurus. But instead, I've decided to say yes (without much commitment). 2) You are recommended also to visit Shinjuku Gyoen for cherry blossom.

Meguro River (2 Replies)
Hi, will be in tokyo april 13. Are there any cherry blossom left? Can we still see flowers in Meguro or Sumida River? Any place you can recommend for cherry blossoms in tokyo?

Response fromShibaInuGuide|
Unfortunately, no. You are three weeks behind for that (two weeks late in the usual year but this year started one week early). For cherry blossom this late, the Tohoku Region is recommended, but many southern locations are now at peak or past peak. Around 14th April if 2018, Inland Aizu Wakamatsu might be recommended.
