Maybe it's not the biggest or the most famous, but it is definitely my first choice! A lot of trees, offering shadow to shelter from sun. A pond, some hills.. wonderful Japanese landscape architecture, as always!

We visited this park several times while in Tokyo, to walk along the river and see the city from a different vantage point. There is much to see, the boats on the Sumida, the busy train lines. There are benches to stop and sit for a bit, but mostly we strolled along taking in the sites and enjoying the various... More

My latest journey to Japan in April 2017 was for sakura viewing. So Sumida Park and Sumida River were one on my lists. I started from Tokyo Skytree Solamachi, then walked from Tokyo Skytree station and walked towards Sumida Park and Kototoi bridge (言問橋). Once you approach the bridge, you will find the park on both left and right sides... More

I went here especially to see the cherry blossom and I must say it was a small but beautiful and elegant park to do so. There were some interesting spots for making nice pictures always with that dominant Tokyo Skytree in the background. Great place for a relaxed view of the cherry blossoms without the huge crowds you see at... More

The were many groups of people doing the Hanamineven though it is not full bloom yet. Some trees have bloomed but many... More

At the entrance there is a washroom room but only for gents. The cherry trees located in small hillocks are a feast for the eyes and a pleasant place... More

I visited Sumida Park right before the peak bloom in Tokyo, so there weren't that many cherry blossoms blooming when I was there. It was also a rainy, windy morning when I went, and I only saw a few locals walking and biking around the area, so it made the area look more lonely than usual. Nevertheless, I still got... More

Unlike other park, Sumida Park is rather more peace and not really pack with people. Along the river, you will find lots of sakura trees. View was definitely astonishing. If you brought along carpet, feel free to open it and sit under tree. You will enjoy the breezing winds as like the locals do.

It is an extensive narrow park that runs alongside the Sumida River starting at the Azumabashi Bridge.It is a fairly typical Tokyo park that ads a little strip of green You do get a good view of Tokyo Sky Tree from the park close to the river. Access is via Asakusa Station, the Asakusa and Ginza lines.
