The taste of Sumida was nurtured in the cultures of sumo, the town folk, and the entertainment districts.Ryogoku, which is situated on the eastern side of the Sumida River, was one of the major shopping and entertainment districts of Edo, alongside Nihombashi and Asakusa. It is said that Edomae nigirizushi, which contained wasabi, originated in Ryogoku when Hanaya Yohei opened his first stall here. Ryogoku is also widely known as the town of sumo. Visitors will still find many restaurants that specialize in chankonabe, the traditional meal that sumo wrestlers eat in their sumo stables.Mukojima is an entertainment district that extends northward from Ryogoku along the Sumida River near Sakurabashi bridge. The area was very popular in the Edo period for its scenery, and visitors enjoyed its numerous restaurants, Japanese confectioners, and tea houses. In the Meiji period, the area also became popular for its many ryotei (high-end Japanese restaurants) and geisha. This was also a stylish and modern town, frequented by the literati and artists.Eateries and stalls selling prepared food are the epitome of the shitamachi of old Tokyo. This area is home to many cafes and yoshoku (Japanese-style western food) restaurants that retain the charm of the Taisho and Showa periods. You can also visit restaurants that serve Japanese food in tatami-floored rooms or enjoy Japanese confectionary created by discerning masters.
