Sumida Park is a large green park with an area of about 80,000 square meters and a wonderful walking path along the Sumida River. Approximately 700 cherry blossom trees run along both sides of the river for a 1km stretch, attracting many people for the popular Japanese activity, Hanami, cherry blossom viewing. The rows of cherry blossom trees are said to have been planted during the reign of the 8th Tokugawa Shogun. This spot has been selected as one of the best “100 Sakura Cherry Blossom Areas” in Japan. Summer is also a popular time for Sumida Park's riverside for the reknowned Sumida Fireworks. There are also various events held throughout the year, such as the Plum Festival, Yabusame Horse Back Archery, Hydrangea Walk, Paper Lantern Floating and more.
