Sakura season in Nakameguro

I was at Nakameguro last night, with a few thousand of my newest Tokyo friends, to enjoy the sakura along the Meguro River now at full bloom.

The Meguro River @ Nakameguro

There was a carnival atmosphere as people walked along the river, sat on plastic sheets and drank sake/beer, had street parties and took LOTS of photos.  All the shops along the riverside were set up as cafes – even the hair salons and clothes boutiques were transformed into temporary cafes with seats on the footpath for passers by to enjoy a drink and watch the view.
