Sumida park has been popular with about 700 Sakura(cherry blossom) trees viewing since Edo period.
This park lies on both side(Taitou-ku and Sumida-ku) of Sumida river.
Sakura Festival on Taitou-ku(Asakusa) side
You can enjoy the veiw of long row of Sakura trees over 1km along Sumida River, and also the view of Tokyo Skytree with Sakura trees. At night the view changes into a fantasy with the tress lit up. Food stands, Wadaiko(Japanese drum)-shows, and free market would be much fun.

There are 44 kinds of Sakura Trees. Food stands, and markets are in the park and Japanese traditional shows would be held.
Sakura trees are lit up at night after Mar/21.

Its a nice park nearby where you can get a nice view of tokyo skytree and the river. I went during the cherry blossom season and it was nice to walk along the river and look at all the cherry blossoms. Other than that its a little bit out of the way from every thing and there really signs a whole lot to do there but it is quiet and relaxing.

Well maintained city parks along the Sumida River. This park also has a playground for children after school. There are lots of mothers and young people gathered together while their children play happily. Children's natural cheerfulness without involving the use of mobile phones. In this park there is also a pond with docile koi fish. What an extraordinary natural scenery.

Very nice park on the riverside. It unfolds it's beauty during cherry blossom but is also a really nice place to hang out before/after the sakura season. Some nice Cafés, lots of space for pedastrians and bicycles and a really nice, clean and big playground for kids of different ages. We had a really nice afternoon there!

Beautiful little park to see and relax at. Was a short walk from our hotel and close to the Asahi HQ.

A nice and quiet park where one can have a good stroll while enjoying the beautiful scenery around. And what more, during cherry blossom season where the blooming flowers add joy and happiness to the atmosphere.
Beautiful and clean River Sumida with boats cruising and the birds (or seagulls?) enjoying themselves!!! A great landscape shot, with the huge Tower behind!
