It's a nice park (maybe lesser people when I compare this to yameshita park in Yokohama). Don't expect to stay here for too long. Not much to people watch except watching interesting birds and individuals feeding them occasionally. You can see the Tokyo skytree from here, and Asahi building is just a few min walk from here!

Wow! Every park in Tokyo is a wonder to behold. Sumida park is no exception. Flowers spread throughout in well kept garden spaces. Fantastic statues are displayed in magnificent ponds and in the gardens. Cannot express the love I have for the Tokyo parks! This one is a gem.
