Designed as a calm, natural oasis in one of the world's busiest cities, Sumida Park ensures some quiet time for visitors looking to recharge their batteries among the numerous cherry trees. Visit this riverside park during sakura, the time when the cherries bloom, and see what makes it a favorite place for both locals and tourists. Take a walk along the Sumida River or hop on boat tour to enjoy priceless views of the city. You can also relax on one of the benches with a good book or check out the gift and souvenir shops scattered across the park.

    Perfect for enjoying views of the Tokyo sky tree, along the Sumida River (especially cherry time), etc, many of the photograph in kimono (hire/rental), green trail and are under construction, also suitable for walks in the Park and playground equipment reasonably clean, For the kids is a feeling of great satisfaction.

    This place is more common, is a City Park, next to the River, you can still see a lot of TV Tower. For leisure as a whole, are not worth going to travel.

    Small gem pretty close to Skytree making it a great place to relax from the busy life. The park is beautifully crafted and has a very calming atmosphere.

    Great little park not far from Tokyo Skytree. We grabbed some lunch from the nearby convenience store, and had a beautiful lunch among the blooming sakura. This was our frist view of the blooming Sakura, and found this park to be way better for getting nice close photos much better than Ueno Park, or some of the more populated parks. A very nice walk around.

    Looks old but it's clean as always. A good view of Tokyo Sktree tower from here, too.

    Peaceful and a quiet park. Unlike Ueno this is the place to go if you want to relax and think about stuff. There's a ton of doves and some crows. A temple and also a small pond with turtles and fishes

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
