Sumiyoshi is a small town in Tokyo just to the south of Kinshicho – about 8 blocks.

It is the 12th stop (Z12) from the western terminus (Shibuya) on the Hanzomon Metro subway line. Kinshicho Station is stop #13 (Z13). Oshiagé/SKYTREE is just 2 more stops to the east and is the eastern terminus for that line.

There’s not a lot to do here, however there are some things worth noting:

Sarue Park is just to the east a few blocks and well worth a stop. Kinshicho and Komedia just to the north are definitely worth a stop.

The stroll down Rt. 50 (Shin-Ohashi-Dori) to the east is quite nice.

About .6 miles along Rt. 50 to the east is the Moon Station Hotel capsule hotel – a very futuristic, clean capsule worth a look.

Head further east and you’ll enter Ojima – and 1.75 miles to the east from Sumiyoshi Sta. is the huge and spectacular Ojima Komatsugawa Park – along the banks of the Arakawa River – Tokyo’s largest. The Arakawa River also has a massive jogging/cycling trail along its banks, which in fact, runs all the way north to Itabashi. The round trip walk from Sumiyoshi Sta. to the large park and back is around 4 miles – a nice short walk or jog.

Sumiyoshi, Kinshicho, and Komedia are all close enough together that you could cover them all + the parks in a day trip.

Tokyo Sky Tree is just a short 1.5-mile walk north, on foot from Sumiyoshi Sta. – also well worth a look.

Enjoy.
