EDOGAWA-KU

A beautiful city by the bay that’s perfect for nature-lovers

Explore the diverse riverside neighborhood

Edogawa Ward, taking its name from the Edogawa River that runs through it, is an often-overlooked city in Tokyo, but for those in the know, it’s an ideal place to live and study. With spacious parks, several waterways, and a traditional, shitamachi (downtown) vibe, Edogawa is a wonderful blend of city and nature. Edogawa is 35 minutes from Tokyo Station and a great place for commuting in and out of the busier districts.

Edogawa is the second most popular ward for foreigners in Tokyo, home to approximately 7.6% of the total foreigner population. This makes for a culturally diverse and rich demographic.

The Edogawa and Arakawa Rivers are great for cooling off and splashing around in the summertime. Because Edogawa is located on Tokyo Bay, it’s even possible to jet-ski and canoe, which is hard to imagine in a concrete jungle like Tokyo.

A notable neighborhood is Kasai, famous for housing one of Tokyo’s largest parks, the Kasai Rinkai Park, just across the river from Tokyo Disney Sea Resort. On clear days, it’s possible to view Disneyland, the Boso Peninsula, and even Mt. Fuji from the park’s beach. The park’s 806,000 square meters includes various attractions, like Tokyo Sea Life Park, an aquarium with an extensive penguin exhibit. The park’s grounds also include Japan’s second-tallest Ferris wheel, offering a striking light show at night.

Kasai Rinkai Park is also a great place to go for cherry-blossom viewing and BBQ-ing. Also, worth visiting is the Edogawa Natural Zoo, located in Kita-Kasai. With free admission and lots of cute animals like an anteater, penguins, and prairie dogs, the zoo is a fun experience for children and adults alike.
Nishi-Kasai is known to many as Tokyo’s Little India, home to approximately 10-percent of Tokyo’s Indian population. As a result, there are lots of authentic and mouthwatering Indian restaurants.
