A hanami walk through a tunnel of sakura

The best way to enjoy hanami around the Meguro River is to stroll along the rows of sakura there. The 800 or so somei-yoshino trees planted on both sides of the Meguro River for about 4 km, from Ohashi near Ikejiri Ohashi Station to Fudomae, Meguro Station, create a magnificent tunnel over the water. Hanami by night with the bombori lanterns glittering on the river surface is truly enchanting. During the flowering period, events are held and the trees are illuminated at night.
