There are many well known spots such as, Ueno park or Imperial palace, but we would like to give you some good spots for cycling as well.
The cherry blossom cycling spots we recommend are all close to the central Tokyo area, such as Shinjuku, Shibuya, Shinagawa. If you are in the central Tokyo area, please check out!
First, Meguro river.
Meguro river is getting really famous for cherry blossoms recently.
Meguro river runs all the way from Tokyo bay area Tennozu-Isle to Nakameguro and even further.
Many cherry trees are on both sides of this Meguro river.
You can enjoy cycling all the way alongside the river.

There are cycling roads in this park, and you can enjoy cycling as well.
