Tokyo, Japan

Meguro River

The Meguro River winds its way to the Bay through three of Tokyo’ “cities” Setagaya, Meguro and Shinagawa. This is a 5km multi-use trail in the heart of Tokyo. Much of it is lined with cherry trees, so it’s a special treat around blossom time. The run passes by (or over or into) some 25 bridges, two parks, a love hotel, two temples and three museums. At night, lanterns line parts of the path. Our route goes the 2.2 miles between Ikejiri-Ohashi station and Meguro Station.
