This town festival is jointly organized by the local retail association, the neighborhood association, and local businesses, with the support of Sumida Ward. The event showcases Ryogoku as a neighborhood full of history and culture.
One of the festival's attractions is the Chanko Museum, where stalls compete to serve the best version of chanko-nabe, a one-pot dish that sumo wrestlers consume in large servings to bulk up. Visitors can enjoy band performances, dances, and a traditional orchestra. You can also learn about the history of the area on a walking tour with a knowledgeable guide. This event is an excellent way to get acquainted with the diverse charms of Ryogoku.
