My favorite spots – Kiyosumi Garden

This park is located near the Ryogokuarea and can be combined when visiting the sumo stables, it is about 20mn walk from there, close to the metro Kiyosumi Shirakawa (Oedo Line).

This park was maintained by the founder of the Mitsubishiempire and was given to the Tokyo City. It was a refuge for the Tokyo citizens during the great earthquake in 1923 and some of the fires during WW II. Very bucolic, I love the peace in there, the silence, the birds, you forget the metropolis for a moment.

At the back of the garden, starts the Fukogawa area with plenty of cafes and roastery as well as izakaya and yakitori places, very friendly and local, no tourists there, it is a very nice Friday out to enjoy the evening vibes
