Sakura at Meguro and 果実園 リーベル 目黒店

果実園 リーベル 目黒店 

Mish and I dropped by Kajitsuen, near Meguro station for dinner one night after work as we wanted to check out the Sakura at Meguro.

I checked Tabelog to see if there were any interesting shops in that area and found that this was the most popular shop in that area for cakes.

True enough, when we arrive there was a queue outside the restaurant.

I ordered their 4 kinds of berries cake that included strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and black berries at 1480yen before tax. Definitely the most expensive fruit cake I've ever had in my life! 

But the cake was good as the sponge cake at the bottom was light and fluffy, and the cream was not that sweet.

After dinner, we walked along the river from Meguro to Naka-meguro.

I was happy because the sakura was pretty and as I've been here last year, it was during the day.

Sakura was pretty weird this year as many predicted that full bloom would be the week before, but it did not happen.

While it started blooming early this year, full bloom was late.

So pretty~

Even after the petals have fallen, they still looked pretty.

Can't get enough of the fallen petals.

Beautiful place for an evening stroll.

This is one of the most common sakura tree in Japan - somei yoshino (ソメイヨシノ).

Look at the pretty pattern!
