Very beautiful and natural park offers scenic views of various plants,trees and flowers.It overlooks Sumida River and ca n be accessed by walk. Not to be missed when you are in Asakusa,Sumida area.

This isn't really all that bad of a park to go visit. The greenery is really nice and the lake in the middle was actually home to a few really beautiful koi fish and turtles. The flowers and trees are all really pretty too. The only problem is that it is completely overrun with homeless people. Unlike most countries, Japanese homeless people tend to be very quiet, reserved, and won't bother you unless you touch any of their things, but it's still off-putting to walk around a park filled with box homes and random piles of junk that they are collecting. Many of them are passed out on benches or even on the side of the pathways. Maybe it was just the time of year that I was there, but Ueno park is only a 5 minute subway ride away and is HUGE compared to this park and offers way more sights, better greenery, better flowers, a temple in the middle of a lake, and not a single homeless person.

Walked through this park after visiting Senjosi Temple heading towards Tokyo Skytree. It was a good stop to get out of the heat as the tree canopies provided shade and slightly cooler temperatures. Sat by the pond and watched several turtles swimming about before walking around on the many paths.

This park is OK. I took a walk from Senso-ji Temple to Tokyo Skytree and stopped to look around for a while.

Visited this park as there was a bakutei cherry blossoms festival. Lots of locals had picnic under cherry blossoms trees. It offers river view and skytree is also within the view. Nice place to wind down a day of shopping. There are ample walking space in the park despite locals sitting on the grass patch and drinking. Overall a nice park to spend 1hr of your time.

This riverside park stretches along both sides of Sumida River for a few hundred meters. When I visited this park on first week of April, most of the cherry blossoms had faded, only a handful of trees left for photo taking, a disappointment indeed. Suggest to visit in mid to late March.

Tokyo is so built up, it's good to enjoy any bit of green space you can find. This is a nice park across the river from Asakusa, There are beautiful trees and a pond. You can also see the Skytree from here.

A nice park surrounded by colourful trees. We rest to perform prayer and have a delicious kebab for lunch. Not far from Tokyo tower

On our walk from the Skytree to Seso-Ji, we came across Sumida Park & the Ushijima Shrine. Whilst only a little park, it is immaculately clean, has a pleasant water pond (today a number of young schoolchilden were 'fishing' & having a great time) & is obviously a great local park for people to enjoy.

The shrine is also very nice, has a number of impressive gates, and a small gift shop selling amulets & other items.

Nice place, great for locals, beside the river but easy to access, and if in the areas, take a few minutes to drop by (don't make a special trip).
