The highlights of the Meguro River
The Meguro River, which flows through Meguro-ku, Tokyo, is a second-class river that starts from Setagaya-ku, Tokyo, and flows from Shinagawa-ku to Tokyo Bay.
In spring, about 800 Yoshino cherry trees bloom in the 4km section along the Meguro River, and the beautiful blooming cherry blossoms from both banks of the river are also felt beautiful.
At night, the night cherry blossoms illuminated by lanterns are lit up, and the Nakameguro Sakura Festival is also held. This is a popular cherry blossom viewing spot that many tourists visit both day and night, especially from Nakameguro to Ikejiri Ohashi.
Depending on the water level of the river, cherry blossoms may appear on the surface of the water, so if you like photography or a camera, it might be beautiful to take a picture here.
In addition, when the cherry blossoms that were in full bloom begin to fall, you can see the Hana-ikada that cover the surface of the water like petals of cherry blossoms.
When in full bloom, walking is very crowded.
This is a cherry blossom viewing spot that has become famous not only in Tokyo but also throughout the country on SNS, etc., so it is very crowded day and night when it is in full bloom.
However, there are times when it is difficult to walk narrowly, but it is a cherry blossom spot that is said to be so beautiful, so you should visit it once.
Recommended time zone not crowded
All the photos on this page were taken between 6:00 and 9:00 in the early morning of the holiday. At this time, people are sparse, and I was able to shoot using a tripod, so I think I can enjoy cherry-blossom viewing and photography at my own pace.
Meguro River cherry blossom full bloom date
The flowering forecast is normally around the late of March, and it will be in full bloom by the end of March at the earliest.
Along with that, the night cherry blossoms are lit up every day from 17:00 to 21:00, so please come and see the fantastic cherry blossoms.
It is possible to go by car, but since you will be using a nearby paid coin parking with high parking fees, it is cheaper to use public transportation.
The issue of cherry blossoms in Meguro River
Meguro River has come to be noticed as one of the most scenic spots in Tokyo, but it seems that issues such as traffic safety measures, littering of garbage, toilets and noise problems are becoming prominent.
It seems that the “Meguro River Cherry Blossom Festival etc. Management Council” was launched as an effort to address this issue, and manner guide and control were started.
