Actually there isn't lots to see. It is peaceful place to walk. River is flowing in a channel. There are very big Koi fishes in the river. Also you can see some birds in river. Most affective side of this river is Sakura trees. These trees are holy for Japanese. When they bloom all river side is painted to pink.... More

This was a great place to see sakura during the season! We were very fortunate to visit Japan at this time! It was great to take pictures on the steps and near the water. Being near the branches on the steps helped with photos too. This is a beautiful place in general just to walk around.

Another great place to visit during Sakura season. Enjoyed having our bento and watching the Sakura flowers. The site was very clean.

It is a surprise that a city can construct such an organized walk along the river. People can walk on both sides of the river. There are places where people could get down to be closer to the river and have their picnic. There are several beautiful bridges in each section. Each bridge is different and has its feature. The...

It wouldn't even get a rating most weeks of the year, but during ohanami (cherry blossom viewing) in the first week of April, it becomes one of the most beautiful places in Nagoya. Just make sure to go at night during the illuminations. There are some food trucks and street vendors. Maybe eat a sweet potato? They're delish.

This is the best spot for cherry blossoms viewing in Nagoya. When I was there on first week of Apr, the flowers were in full bloom. Along both sides of the river, the cherry blossom trees were so beautiful to behold. One could walk leisurely along the pathways under the trees. There were many locals there, enjoying the view, strolling,... More

This path, called the Shikinomichi path, is one of the loveliest places we saw during sakura season. While I am sure it is pleasant at other times, I don't think it would be nearly as attractive and perhaps not worth the short trip out from central Nagoya. When the cherry trees are in bloom, the combination of rows of trees... More

Come evening time there are a multitude of small outdoor drinking establishments that serve you your drink and freshly made food to go with it. Luckily there is a lot of shopping to do in the area while waiting for the evenings.

Was there towards the end of Sakura period and the sight was beautiful!!! There were not as much people too. I thought I was going to miss the Sakura but so glad that I managed to catch them!

Went on the last day of March with the Cherry Blossoms in almost peak bloom. We took the subway to Mizuhoundojohigashi Station and walked to just north of Mizuho Park where the Sakuras lining the river seemed to start. And so we walked Southwest from there along the river and it was great.
