Experience an authentic shitamachi atmosphere
Adachi is beloved by both local residents and visitors as a shitamachi (old town) with a warm downtown atmosphere. By contrast to the bustling cityscapes and crowded streets of the Tokyo Metropolis, Adachi is one of the havens for traditional Japanese culture. Visitors can enjoy walking around the neighborhood, eating local Japanese cuisine and experiencing traditional Japanese culture such as bathing in a public bath or tasting fresh seafood at the Adachi Fish Market.
Located within 40 minutes from Tokyo Station by train, Adachi is a great place to escape from the city, especially due to the many parks filled with lush greenery. Hanahata Park is a tranquil and relaxing flower park that was opened to the public in 1984. It serves as a popular tourist site year-round, but particularly during the spring cherry blossom season.

The Sumida River flowing through Adachi is another popular area where visitors can experience Tokyo on a river cruise or simply enjoy a relaxing stroll or bike ride along the riverbanks. The Sumida River Fireworks Festival is another can’t-miss event. Originally called Ryogoku Kawabiraki, the festival’s history dates back to 1733, and continues to be one of the most popular fireworks festivals in Tokyo.
Nishiarai Daishi is a temple of the Shingon Buzan sect located in Nishiarai, in Adachi Ward. It is considered one of the Three Great Temples in the Kanto region, and is especially popular for hatsumode (first Shinto shrine visit of the Japanese New Year), where visitors from around the country flock to celebrate the turn of the year. The temple is conveniently located within walking distance from a SAKURA HOUSE guest house.
