The Sumida River and Tokyo Sky Tree

 
 

Spring, the comfortable season has come.

We introduce the Sumida River and Tokyo Sky Tree which are wonderful for walking in spring.

The Sumida River is a big river and runs from north to south in the heart of Tokyo. It has contributed to people’s life since olden days. Nowadays it is a joyful sightseeing place, too. In spring, there are beautiful bloom of cherry blossom trees, particularly the one in the Sumida park along the river is famous. And it also has a riverside walk called ‘River Terrace’ which is good for walking while watching the river.

Tokyo Sky Tree is the world’s tallest broadcasting tower built near the Sumida River. It is 634m high. It has observation decks and they say it is possible to see throughout the Kanto region from there. However, you need to wait until the tower opens in the end of May.

A row of cherry blossom trees along the Sumida River is located nearby ‘Asakusa station’ of Tobu railroad, Tokyo Metoro Ginza line or Toei Asakusa line. Tokyo Sky Tree is located nearby `Tokyo Sky Tree station’ of Tobu railroad. As the distance of two places is only about 1km, you can walk from one to the other while enjoying scenery of the downtown of Tokyo.
