Tokyo Meguro Sky Garden

Hidden gem sitting on top of a hideous highway

What’s the best way to hide a hideous and monstrous highway intersection? Just cover it up and turn it into a nice, quiet garden!

Planted on top of the roof of the Ohashi Junction, the Meguro Sky Garden is a 400m long spiralling garden constructed on a slope rising from 15 to 35 meters above street level. At its center, the Meguro Sky Garden hides a library, a large football field and even a car park.

Open from 9am to 9pm, the Meguro Sky Garden is not only a pleasant place to take a break if you are living nearby, but also a nice spot to shoot photos and videos of Fuji-San (Mt Fuji) and the urban landscape.

Getting there

3 minutes from Ikejiri-Ohashi Station on the Den-en-toshi Line.

Love that they've put some greenery in perhaps the most unlikely of places!
