This place is all about sakura! If you come to Tokyo in late March - mid April, don't miss this gorgeous sight. Nakameguro river is 100 meters away from the Naka-meguro station, and can be reached in 5 mins from Shibuya by Tokyu Toyoko line.

This is a great place for a stroll when the Sakura are blooming. Very picturesque, and in an interesting neighborhood. Vendors of food and drink were everywhere. We felt very much 'in' Tokyo as we enjoyed the sakura and atmosphere of the area.

We went here at the end of cherry blossom season but it was still a really pretty walk and there were a few stalls with food and drink still around. We then walked into the Daikanyama area which is full of nice houses, shops and cafes and worth a stroll. This whole are is a different, slower side to Tokyo... More

This was a gorgeous spot for viewing the Sakura with them cascading over the side of the river in multitudes. Looking down the river and seeing so many was just terrific and worth the effort.

Best place for sakura (cherry blossoms) viewing in Tokyo. I went during the day and another day during the night and both times, I loved it. There are 800 cherry trees along the canal - the views are amazing. There are many vendors selling pink sparkling wine and appetizers - really cute!

One of the four top must visit Cherry Blossom spots in Tokyo. During the peak of Cherry Blossom bloom, the 3.8 km river is lit with lights and there are street vendors, bars, cafes and restaurants along the river. Makes for a romantic outing. Definitely try to visit during 5 to 7 pm. Capture the sunset atmosphere and enjoy the... More

Strolled by the river during cherry blossom season. It was a fantastic spot for hasani and popular among locals. If you are visiting during the cherry blossom season it's a must!

A lot of Cherry trees along the river and lots of street venders, bars, cafes and tiny restaurants along the river. They also have light up at night during the cherry blossoms festival season.

This river has some of the most beautiful and scenic cherry blossom viewing in Tokyo. It seems like it goes on and on. There are street vendors all over the place selling food items along the pathways. Lots of areas to relax and stop to enjoy people watching and catching up on eating light snacks.

Staying in Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu

Neighborhood Profile
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. At the Museum of Yebisu Beer you can learn about the beer that was responsible for the town’s name, and enjoy dining at the popular noodle shops in the surrounding area.
