Cometh the season, as the saying almost goes, cometh the man. And every year when the hanami season rolls around, you are likely to find us strolling down by the Meguro River in Naka-Meguro. It’s a favorite spot for us, not just for the superb cherry blossom that lines both banks, but also because there is such good dining to be had in this area.

There are plenty of excellent restaurants right alongside the river, several of which we have reviewed in past columns. But this year, instead, we directed our feet across Yamate-dori and up the hill, to the peaceful, stylish environs of Higashi-yama.

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
