Smida Park is a great place to view cherry blossoms in the spring. The 1km strip along each side of the Sumida River, between the Azuma bridge and the Sakura bridge, is lined with hundreds of cherry trees of a various varieties. Viewed from the west side, the amazing contrast of the soaring Tokyo Skytree and the sprawling pink ribbon in water reflection adds to flamboyant atmosphere.

Walk north from the Azuma bridge through flowery tunnels until the Sakura bridge, an X-shaped pedestrian bridge where you can look back relaxingly and view the river magnificently flanked by cherry blossoms. Another way to enjoy the scene is get on board a cruise ship at the Azuma bridge. In the 17th century , a generous shogun ordered to have the trees planted and made the area open to the public.

While leading an educational program for high school students, I found myself looking for a spacious but quiet place to do our final sharing session in the evening. Going into the park and down on the path near the river couldn't have been a more perfect spot. Plenty of space to sit, beautiful river with passing lantern boats to gaze at, and a marvelous view of the Skytree.

A quiet serene park on Sumida River that's perfect to take a moment to rest. There is lots of shade and plenty of clean benches. The best seats are along the river where there's a view of the Tokyo Sky Tree. The sounds of the city are a bum in the background with the sweet sound of birds being what you mainly hear.

One of the greatest place to have an open Tokyo air, completed with Tokyo Skytree.

5 mins away from Sensoji.

Oh its absolutely beautiful in Sakura season. There is Sakura laden trees showering the flowers on ground and people sitting beneath it with lots of booze and food. Straight from a fairy tale movie.
Long walks alongside the river, with a cool breeze blowing into your face. Temples and Shrines around for you to spend some quality time with yourself.

A nice long park that straddles the Sumida River. Best place to escape the horrible crowds at the nearby Sensōji and Kaminarimon. Has excellent views of Tokyo Skytree and the Asahi Beer HQ building.

I specifically chose April cherry blossom when Japan tour, Sumida stood on both sides of the many cherry blossom trees, very beautiful, very spectacular. One cherry blossoms with river views, the kind of beauty now.

我特意选择四月份樱花盛开的时候去日本旅游,隅田川的两岸立着许多樱花树,很美丽,很壮观。樱花与河川的景色融为一体,那种美景至今难忘。
