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.
Sumida Park has been famous for its cherry trees since the Edo period (1603-1868). These beautiful trees line the Sumidagawa River, and when their leaves change color in the autumn, they are lit up in the evening. Lanterns are also installed along the walking path, creating a vibrant spectacle.
A teahouse that evokes the atmosphere of old Edo will be open on the weekends, so you can enjoy a cup of tea as you gaze out on the beautiful surroundings, including Tokyo Skytree® in the background.
Come and experience a pathway of illuminated autumn leaves that will transport you back to samurai times.
Note: This event is sponsored in part by the Autumn Illuminations Model Business Grant, a program run jointly by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government and the Tokyo Convention and Visitors Bureau.
Please check the official event website for the latest updates on opening dates and times, prices, and other information.
