Meguro station is actually located in the Shinagawa Ward, not Meguro ward. The Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum is located in the Minato Ward. Reference

Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn. =) We're aiming for travellers here, not bureaucrats. (WT-en) Jpatokal 11:56, 20 October 2006 (EDT)
Then pray tell the legitimacy of using wards as a means of categorization. Even natives don't consciously acknowledge ward boundaries inside Tokyo; areas centering on main train stations for example would be a more practical option. (e.g. Ebisu/Meguro/Daikanyama area) If on the other hand wards is the direction you want to go with, shouldn't they at least be accurate?
Wards are useful when they correspond to rational divisions, and eg. Tokyo/Shibuya and Tokyo/Shinjuku are centered around stations of the same name, but Wikivoyage doesn't follows wards religiously: consider eg. Tokyo/Asakusa (not a ward) and Tokyo/Odaiba (theoretically split between three wards). The fact that Meguro Station is not in Meguro Ward is, even by Japanese standards, so bizarre that I don't think we need to burden tourists with this pointless trivia — if it's between Meguro stn and Meguro ward, it's Meguro enough for me.
