Nakameguro is a great spot to view Cherry Blossoms. It`s not your usual open park setting, but it`s great place to take a stroll and visit the many restaurants and shops along the river. Restaurant food and wine vendors are set up all along the river day and night (lanterns are lit up along the river at night).
Nakameguro Station. Cross Yamate Street. You can`t miss it.
Nakameguro Wikipedia Definition:
Nakameguro (中目黒) is a quiet residential district of Meguro, Tokyo. The district is situated along Yamate Dōri Ave and on the southern region of Komazawa Dōri Ave. Since Nakameguro Station is located not in this district but in northern Kamimeguro, the place name Nakameguro is often used for the larger region encompassing Nakameguro and Kamimeguro as well as a small portion of Aobadai and Higashiyama.
Yūtenji temple, built in 1718, is a temple of the Pure Land Buddhism located on the easternmost part of Nakameguro. Note that Yūtenji is also the name of a district adjacent to Nakameguro in Meguro, but it is not the Yūtenji district that is home to the temple.
