The Meguro River Cherry Blossoms was the next stop on our Sakura tour of Tokyo. (Ueno Park was the first stop.)

Aim to head to Meguro early in the day during Sakura Season as it gets very busy with tourists and locals making the journey to view the 800 cherry blossoms that line the Meguro River. We went early morning and had the place mostly to ourselves.

The walk down the hill from Meguro Station is steep but worth the effort.

Your first glimpse of the cherry blossom lined river will likely take your breath away. Though on the day we visited it was incredibly windy so that could have been a factor too!

The whistling wind added to the atmosphere, with the lanterns dancing happily along the river. At night it must look spectacular with the lanterns shining bright.

There are plenty of photo opportunities within a short distance. No matter whether you visit when the cherry blossoms are tiny buds or in full bloom, you’re sure to find beauty aplenty along the river.

We stayed at the Ibis Tokyo Shinjuku, the hotel was excellent – comfortable beds, clean rooms and conveniently located in walking distance to endless eating and shopping options plus Shinjuku station, which is on the same train line as most Tokyo sights, including Meguro River Station.

To get to the cherry blossoms, alight at Meguro Station and walk down the hill to the river. You can stop in at the historic Daien-ji Temple.

I’ve mapped the route below from the station to 7/11 as it’s across from the cherry blossom lined river. (And is a great spot to stop for snacks before/after.)
