Focus on the area-the river walk,Nakameguro

Nakameguro, embracing the Meguro river with cherry-blossom alley stretching over 2km, is a a haven of rest for local residents.You can find select-hideaways along the river-cafes,special shops, boutiques.A walk with no destination sounds the best way of enjoying Nakameguro.

Cherry blossoms fully blooming.

Your plan in the beginning of April sounds perfect for a visit.  

Have a break at a reserved spot.

Every visit has a bunch of findings on new comers carrying crafts, serving special coffee, and cutting-edge perple.
