Navigating Japan’s public transport system can often be a daunting task. Let a guide do the work for you on this tour of Mt. Fuji and Lake Ashi by coach and bullet train, which saves you hours in travel time. Ascend to the Mt. Fuji’s 5th Station; ride on the Komagatake Ropeway, one of Japan’s highest aerial tramways; and take a cruise on Lake Ashi, part of Hakone National Park.

We took the train and visited this place during the day and also at night. The cherry blossoms look better at night when the whole area is lighted up. Crowded with people and you may need to jostle for space.

The Christmas illumination of the riverside looks far better in pictures than it did in person, I would suggest visiting other light installations if you had others in mind. This is a going to be more of an intentional visit without being in proximity to other possible attractions.

Meguro River is 2km long, so you can get there by a lot of train stops. Get off at Nakmeguro for food and shopping. There are a lot of shops and eateries lining the canal here, and the trees line the river with their branches hanging over the river. I was there in early autumn, and you could understand why this is a popular spot during the cherry blossoms season. The Meguro River illuminations are nearer the Osaki and Golanda train stations. We felt rather underwhelmed by the illuminations, perhaps because it was early autumn when we were there, so the effect of the illuminations wasn't great. It may be nicer when the trees have fully turned red.

I took a quick visit to the area. Walked don hill from Meguro Station and headed right along the river. Looked like nice food places on way down (RHS). People playing tennis near river, a few runners. I had a quiet walk and stopped for a drink from vending machine. Would look good a night here. I think the was a golf range on right hand side of path.

More a canal than a river, this stream runs for about eight kilometers before it enters into Tokyo Bay. Much of it is tree-lined and there a walking paths on both sides and it winds its way through one of Tokyo's better suburbs. It is a good location to see cherry blossom at the right time of year. Walk west from Meguro Station and down the hill and you cnnot miss it.
