The Meguro River is a famous spot to visit in the cherry blossom season, with 800 cherry blossom trees standing along the riverside. However, as it is not a park, you cannot sit and have a picnic; you must walk along the riverside. Therefore, many people go to restaurants near the river to look at the cherry blossoms from the restaurant.

BACIONE

One famous restaurant that has a cherry blossom view is an Italian restaurant called "BACIONE".
It is only a 4 minute walk to the restaurant from Nakameguro station, and you can enjoy Italian food and wine while looking at the beautiful cherry blossoms. Their specialty dish is the Pork T-Bone Steak, which has been on the menu ever since they opened in 1996.

Ueno Park is THE place that every Japanese person would think of as a cherry blossom spot in Tokyo. It is known as one of the most popular spots for cherry blossom picnics (hanami), with more than 1000 cherry blossom trees. As several hundred thousand people visit this park every day when cherry blossoms are blooming, those who do not like to be in crowded places should eat in nearby restaurants with a nice cherry blossom view.

Inshoutei 韻松亭

One place that you can enjoy authentic Japanese food while also enjoying the cherry blossom view is Inshoutei, which is a restaurant located 3 minutes away from Ueno Park Station. During lunch time they have bento lunches and lunch courses that include seasonal dishes, and dinner courses during dinner time. The most recommended dinner course is the Sukiyaki course, which is unique for using chicken instead of beef.

Outdoor picnics under the cherry blossoms are nice too, but it requires a lot of effort to make or buy the food and beverages. So why not go to restaurants near the famous cherry blossom spots to enjoy the cherry blossom view while being served with delicious food?
