Meguro Sky Garden (目黒天空庭園, Meguro Tenkuteien) is a linear roof garden park in Ohashi, Meguro, Tokyo, Japan, constructed on a sloping roof rising from 15 to 35 meters above street level. The garden serves to cover the intersection of two major expressways; the elevated Route 3 (Shuto Expressway) Shibuya radial route (Tanimachi JCT - Yoga) and the deep level subterranean Central Circular Route C2.[1]

The completed interchange links the Central Circular Route (Shuto Expressway) through the Yamate Tunnel as far as the Bayshore Route in Shinagawa.[2]

The road junction redevelopment also includes high rise residential housing, retail, a local Meguro government branch office, a library, community meeting rooms and all-weather sports facilities.[3]
