Nakameguro one of Tokyo’s famous sakura spots

The Meguro-gawa River flowing through this residential district is one of Tokyo’s most famous hanami spots. There are 800 trees lining a 3.8-kilometer-long section of the banks. During the Nakameguro Sakura-matsuri Festival in early April, paper lanterns are lit and the trees between Tenjin-bashi Bridge and Horai-bashi Bridge are illuminated.

“Nakameguro was best known for the narrow, cherry tree-lined Meguro River, which bisects the neighborhood and draws tourists from all corners of Japan, particularly during the spring festival season.
Today, Nakameguro has gained a reputation as one of Tokyo’s hippest neighborhoods, a harmonious melding of old and new, urban and rustic. “From “The New York Time” March 5, 2009.
