A nice outing would be to walk along the Nakameguro River to view the remaining Cherry Blossoms, picnic at the park then stop in one of our Nakameguro Area recommended restaurants for an early dinner. If you didn`t have time to pack a lunch, Cafe Core, an organic coffee shop and bakery is located in the hospital next door to the park. There is also a 7/11 across the river on Yamate dori (street).
