This trendy Tokyo neighbourhood is best known for the Meguro River that runs through the district and the revamped under-the-tracks area. The former is flanked by cherry trees, eateries and independent shops while the latter is home to some of the area's best cafés, restaurants and bars, including our favourite oden restaurant Samon and minimalist coffeeshop Artless.
In spring, the river turns into a photogenic landscape of cherry blossoms. However, the entire area surrounding the station always makes for a nice walk anytime of the year. Venture away from the Meguro riverside, follow the train tracks, and you’ll find a weath of hidden art galleries, independent shops, and cute cafés.
Unfortunately, this year's cherry blossom festival along the Meguro River has been cancelled due to the Covid-19 coronavirus outbreak – but you'll still be able to enjoy the gorgeous blooms in the day with (hopefully) less crowds.
