Ryogoku: Sumo Town

Ryogoku is Tokyo’s sumo neighborhood, but this traditional shitamachi (downtown) on the eastern bank of the Sumida River boasts many additional fascinating sites. Visit a sumo temple, a famous spot associated with the 47 samurai, a traditional garden, and a park that’s seen more than its fair share of disasters. Along the way, hear stories of sumo wrestlers, sushi makers and samurai bent on revenge, among others.
