Sumiyoshi: International house in the ancient Tokyo’s downtown!

Area

Sumiyoshi is a town located in the special ward of Koto in the southern part of Tokyo. While Fukagawa, Honjo, and Mozennakacho are some of the more notable places, the Tokyo Bay in the area has been home to merchants and common folk since the Edo period. Many historic towns retain the same sense of spirit and customs. Sumiyoshi is one of those historical towns where you can enjoy the feeling of traditional Japan。

If you like the convenience of the city but also want to feel closer to the ocean, this location is perfect for you. From the closest station, you will have convenient access to many areas around Tokyo. The bustling modern area of Shinjuku, as well as the popular shopping area located on the artificial island of Odaiba, are both a short 30-minute train ride away. With a 40-minute train ride, it will also take you to the popular Tokyo Disney Sea amusement park.

If you don’t feel like going far, a shopping street is located near the sharehouse. The closest supermarket is also a short 6-minute walk away.
