In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), various facilities around Tokyo may change their operating days or hours. In addition, some events may be canceled or postponed. Please check official facility or event websites for the latest updates and information.
Just north of Sumida Park on the east side of the Sumidagawa River, enjoy a short stop at Chomeiji Temple. This humble Buddhist temple is known for its sakura mochi (a sweet Japanese rice cake wrapped in a pickled cherry blossom leaf and filled with red bean paste) and the water from its well, which is said to have cured the third Tokugawa shogun Iemitsu's back pain. Afterward you can visit Tokyo Skytree, only a short walk away.
For updated information on opening hours, closings, prices, and more, please check the official website or ask the facility directly.
