[Sakura 2014] Meguro River (目黒川)

Sakura 2014 Meguro River
Number 2 spot for sakura viewing in Tokyo for 2014 from the current ranking online. This is a stretch of 3.8km of sakura so you can take your time to explore. Most people usually start from Nakameguro Station but we started off from Meguro Station.

I was puzzled over why the number two spot is not crowded with people, then I later realize why. (to be explained later) Anyway, isn’t ROMANTIC to walk under this canopy of trees?

We just see stretches and stretches of fully bloomed sakura.

The river would be filled with sakura petals when it is end of season. That is another fun activities too to walk under the “sakura rain” where the sakura petal fall on you.

What is the most popular drink? of course, rose champagne topped with a strawberry. 500JPY for a glass and most of the ladies were holding this and the gentlemen with a beer in hand.
