Nakameguro & Daikanyama
Nakameguro is one of Tokyo's trendiest neighborhoods and well-known for cherry blossoms along the Meguro River in spring. The river is a photogenic landscape when the cherry blossoms are in full bloom.
Many couples enjoy strolling along the river all the year round.
It is home to eateries, unique shops and cafes like Starbucks Roastery.
SATO SAKURA MUSEUM showcases Japanese-style paintings depicting cherry blossoms by Japanese artists. If you missed the cherry blossom season, you can enjoy a variety of Sakura pictures featuring famous Sakura spots in Japan.
