Meguro River sakura sight-seeing is popular amongst locals and tourists. People enjoy drinking a glass of sparkling wine under cherry trees with their friends and colleagues which is allowed because restaurants and cafes that surround the area are often full during that season. What makes ‘hanami’ more interesting here is that you can see sakura trees closer and be able to take a shot with the pink lanterns surrounding it which reflects to the flowers and make it look pinkish white at night.
