Highlights around Sumida
Built in 1657 and used as a Sumo wrestling venue in the Edo and Meiji Periods, the first professional sumo tournament was held at Ekoin in 1768. This legacy means many apprentice wrestlers come to the temple to pray for power and success.
A broadcasting and observation tower, and one of the most iconic buildings of the Tokyo skyline. At 634m, it is the tallest structure in Japan and second tallest structure in the world. It is every bit at popular as it is spectacular.
