Sumida Park

隅田公園

Description

Approximately 45 acres, a park located along the Sumida River, extending over the two wards of Taito ward and Sumida ward. The Japanese garden on the Sumida ward side of the park was made using the remains of Mito Tokugawa family’s residential house from the Edo period, such as its pond. The house was destroyed in the Great Kanto Earthquake. Later the remains were incorporated into the Sumida Park and transformed into the Japanese garden. About 1,000 cherry trees are planted in the park, 600 cherry trees in the Taito ward side and 400 cherry trees in the Sumida ward side and the park was selected as one of Japan's Top 100 Cherry Blossom Spots. Especially a stretch of both banks of the Sumida River between Azumabashi Bridge and Sakurabashi Bridge has approximately a 1 km line of cherry trees. It is a very popular photography spot where you can shoot photos of cherry blossoms with the Tokyo Skytree. During summer one of Japan's biggest firework festivals is held on the Sumida River. You can also enjoy sports at the sports center with a baseball field and tennis courts located in the Taito ward side. A 5-minute walk from Asakusa Station on the Tobu Skytree Line, the Toei Asakusa Line and the Tokyo Metro Ginza Line.
