Nakameguro’s famous cherry blossom-lined Meguro River


In the previous post, we brought you information about Japan’s most beautiful cherry blossom spots. Among them, Nakameguro is a must-visit destination because its picturesque beauty is created by hundreds of cherry blossom trees blooming along the Meguro River.

The best time to visit here to see the cherry blossoms in full bloom is usually in late March to early April, although the exact timing can vary slightly from year to year, depending on weather conditions.

During this time, the cherry blossom trees along the Meguro River and the canal area in Nakameguro will fully bloom, creating stunning pink scenery. If you have time, you can stay after dark to see the cherry blossom trees in a different light.
