Naka Meguro (中目黒) was already our third hanami spot and I was still exhilarated and in awe when I our train stopped at Naka Meguro station. Once I got off the train, what greeted us was these massive white sakura!

A row of cherry trees on each sides of the river bank. At full bloom, they created this sakura "roof", and I felt like I was walking under a huge sakura cloud! Such a beautiful feeling.

There were lotsa pop-up stores selling food & drinks by the river banks. We had some pink bubbly as we strolled down the river bank under the sakura trees.

Cherry blossom is short-lived. They usually last about 10 days after their full bloom. Some time even shorter because of strong wind & rain. Therefore, during cherry blossom, everyone seems to slow down their daily pace to take in the beauty of sakura. It isn't unusual to see Japanese men in business suits, whipped out their phones to capture this beautiful moment while on their lunch break. I believed they have seen countless cherry blossom yet they still appeared as though they were seeing it for the first time.
