Meguro River, Tokyo

#1 of 28 in Nature in Tokyo
Water Body · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
Take a stroll along the banks of Meguro River, a river flowing through the city and into Tokyo Bay. The concrete walls of the river give it the appearance of an urban canal, but the public space either side offers plentiful areas of well-maintained greenery, gardens, and lawns. The river provides a welcome reprieve from the stresses of the capital city, and has become particularly popular for its cherry blossom trees, leaning in and over the water from opposite banks to create a tunnel of blossom in some areas. Our Tokyo holiday maker app makes visiting Meguro River and other Tokyo attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • 5 stars spot for Hanami ! I’ve been to many places for Hanami but i think that’s my best memory so far ! The view is just unreal with the lights. There is a lot of stores around so easy to grab some food or drinks and stroll around. It must be a good place to walk around during non-hanami too 😉
  • One of the best places to witness cherry blossoms in full bloom in Tokyo!
