Walk & Play at Sumida Park in Asakusa
Sumida Park and Tokyo Skytree
When you visit Asakusa, don't only go to Senso-ji temple. Also go to Sumida River and take a walk in Sumida Park. The park has great views of Tokyo Skytree and a big playground for children. There are also two small cafes here overlooking the river.
Take a walk - under the cherry blossoms in the spring
To reach Sumida Park go towards the river from Asakusa station or Senso-ji. For a nice walk, go across the red Azumabashi Bridge to the golden Asahi Beer building. Turn left and walk along the river to the next bridge, Kototoi-bashi. Cross it to come back to the Asakusa side. A nice playground is located next to this bridge.
During sakura time Sumida Park is a popular spot for hanami. In late March to early April the cherry blossoms are beautiful. For a quick hanami bring a drink and some snacks from a convenience store or cafe.
