The #1 most beautiful place to view cherry blossoms in Tokyo is the Naka-Meguro River walk! Huge cherry blossom trees line both sides of the river with Japanese street food vendors along the sidewalk.

This year, we visited Nakameguro river 2 times during the cherry blossom season. Once in the daytime and the 2nd time at sunset to dusk. Both times the cherry blossoms were in full bloom and such an unforgettable experience in Tokyo for kids. In the daytime it is a lot less crowded and still very beautiful. But it is a sunset when this place truly lights up in pink magic. The pink lanterns light up and reflects in the water below.
How to get here:
This place is easily accessible from the Naka-meguro train station. That bridge is crazy busy as you can see in the video. So, we usually arrive by taxi (the drivers all know where to drop you off to see the cherry blossoms) and walk from the less busy side toward the train station.
Tokyo with Kids:
We visited with our 4 & 2 year old kids. And Japan is very safe and fun place for kids, but this place can get crowded at night. Also people are not really paying attention as they are all taking photos and selfies! And some of the bridges are roads that cars drive through, so be careful in those areas. We kept our kids on the stroller in the busy areas. But there is a lot of yummy street food that kept them satisfied and happy!
