Important part of cherry blossom viewing
In Japan, spring is Cherry blossom viewing season.
The important part of Cherry blossom viewing is not only cherry blossom, but also drinking and eating.
There is Japanese old proverb about this, “dumplings rather than flowers; people are more interested in the practical over the aesthetic”
But cherry tree is growing in the wild.
It means that when we want to eat & drink, we must bring food and beer. Or after viewing cherry blossom, we go to restaurant and food shop.
This is very inconvenience.
Why Meguro river is good for cherry blossom viewing?
But this place, Meguro River is very special place because there are lots of restaurants and food shop near cherry blossom grove.
Cherry tree is planted along the river side and at the same time, lots of restaurants are located along river. River and cherry trees are srounded by lots of buidings.
There are 830 cherry trees in this area. And pavement between cherry tree and shops is very narrow.
So this Meguro river pavement is really full of Cherry tree and crowded people in Cherry blossom season.
You can enjoy Japanese joyous spring mood at Meguro River in cherry blossom viewing season.
