This beautiful area in Meguro is sort of a hidden gem. It's a loop-shaped garden on top of a highway intersection. The garden opened in 2013 and was awarded the Good Design Award that same year by the Japan Institute of Design Promotion.

Saigōyama Park

There are so many beautiful parks to relax in Meguro, Saigoyama being one of them. It is also a popular spot during cherry blossom seasons and is also beautiful all-year-round. It's great for family outings and picnics.

Visit some temples

Ryūsenji

Meguro Parasitological Museum

Although this may not be your cup of tea, this is a very interesting museum to visit. This museum is also a private research facility, where you can learn about all types of parasites. They showcase parasites affecting humans as well and how it affects us.

Cherry blossom viewing in Spring

Meguro river is considered one of the most beautiful places to admire the cherry blossoms in Tokyo. It is a very lively area where you can sit at the terrace of one of the restos by the river. Or, you can bring your own blanket and sit down with your friends while enjoying some snacks and some drinks.

Take part in the sanma festival in summer

Sanma_on_the_grill
The Sanma Matsuri in Meguro is a fun and lively event where tons of people gather to enjoy fresh fish delivered directly from Iwate. The event is held on September 9 and people gather from morning to make sure they get one too. Since 30,000 gather every year and only 7,000 fish are offered, you might want to get there early!
Lili Wanderlust
I love travelling and discovering new cuisines. Japan has a panoply of local dishes to try. I also love yoga, coffee, reading, and cycling.
