Sumida Park is divided into two districts on either side of the Sumida River: Taito Ward, including Asakusa Sensoji Temple and Sumida Ward featuring TOKYO SKYTREE. Historically, sakura viewing in Sumida Park began around 300 years ago, during the Edo era. The Eighth Shōgun, Tokugawa Yoshimune, planted about 900 cherry trees in 1717 – 500 to 600 trees on the Taito side and about 330 on the Sumida side. One of the best ways to experience the blossoms is to take a leisurely stroll (about ten-minutes) east or west across the SUMIDA RIVER WALK.
