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.

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 it’s 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 finish up with dinner at an amazing Udon noodle based pub that features local seasonal dishes, Japanese rice wine and other of course amazing handmade noodles.
