What we will do
PLEASE 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 message us at firstname.lastname@example.org
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 fairyland. Nakameguro is a trendy, beautiful neighborhood, very famous for its 2 km 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 of course amazing handmade noodles
