Blue Cave is Great at Meguro River. But Don't Forget about Red Cave!

Illuminations of Meguro River

I really wanted to see this for long. This is one of the most famous illuminations of Tokyo called "Blue Cave", where hundreds of Sakura trees are lit in blue over 500 meters.

 

Meguro River Crowded with People

So many people have visited here that the illuminations were called off on all the weekends and holidays. To tell the truth, I was planing to come here last Saturday. But as the illuminations were called off on that day, I went to Roppongi instead.

Today, I managed to come and saw thousands of people along Meguro River. Naka-Meguro Station, the nearest station to the river, was also extremely crowded with people.

But the illuminations are worth going through such a small hardship. Fairy-tale like blue illuminations were charming the visitors. But I would like to say one thing.

 

Warm Illuminations Next To Naka-Meguro Station

You can find red illuminations right next to Naka-Meguro Station. Some pedestrians were saying that these orange illuminations are more beautiful than the blue ones. Why not check both when you come to Naka-Meguro Station?

By the way, I think I should have used a telephoto lens to capture the best of Blue Cave. Then, I need a tripod, too. If I had another chance, I would come with another lens, though...
