What you can expect
IMPORTANT NOTE: Our tour is continuing as scheduled for Cherry Blossom season 2020 but please note due to changes recommended by the Japanese government for reducing the spread of Covid19 this season, the canal trees will not be lit in the evening and the normal festival food stalls will not be in operation. The cherry trees will still be gorgeous of course and we will have many fun food experiences planned. We will be substituting our food stops to include local dishes at restaurants near the Cherry Blossom area as well as special snacks we will share with our guests. Your understanding is appreciated. If you have any questions please let us know.

Cherry Blossom season in Tokyo is so beautiful, and even more so in the evening when lanterns and lights turn the tree-lined streets into a magical fairy land. Nakameguro is a trendy, beautiful neighborhood, very famous for its 2km route along the Meguro River/Canal. This entire route is lined with cherry trees and it must be seen in person to really get a feeling for how beautiful the sakura (cherry trees) are. Join us on this walking tour along the canal and around the vibrant restaurant and shopping area. Taste local treats and beverages, explore the history of the district, and enjoy a dinner at an amazing izakaya that features seasonal dishes.
Sakura season is short, about one month from the first tiny buds to the finish of the season with the peak being about two weeks. It is impossible to predict exact dates each year but we will be offering this limited edition tour in the time period most famous for Hanami. With our guide, learn about the the area, the meaning and reason behind sakura season, and taste local specialties that are bound to be pleasing to the eye and to the palate.
Nakameguro is a very fashionable district with many small boutiques, and during the sakura season there are lots of stalls selling yummy snacks and streetfood. Join us on this tour to experience the real Cherry Blossom vibes with a local and foodie expert!
