Tokyo’s New Commercial Complex to Further Enhance the Charm of Asakusa

July 1, 2020 Visit North Asia No Comments Email Email

In June 2020, a new major commercial complex has opened underneath Tobu Railway’s elevated railway tracks that connect TOKYO SKYTREE® to Asakusa – a popular destination for all visitors in Tokyo. The new complex comes as a welcome neighbour to TOKYO SKYTREE TOWN®, further extending the area’s variety of historical, cultural and culinary delights as well as offering further facilities for shopping and entertainment.

We acknowledge the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and encourage all travellers to follow official health advice and closely monitor government advisories. In this evolving situation, we hope the destinations featured in this media release can act as a source of inspiration for those seeking new adventures to embark upon when international travel recommences.

The two complexes named ‘TOKYO mizumachi’ and ‘SUMIDA RIVER WALK’, are a collaboration between the Tobu Group and Sumida Ward of Tokyo City creating an inviting area within the city.

TOKYO mizumachi utilises the previously empty spaces under the elevated train tracks of the Tobu Railway along the Kitajukken River that leads from Asakusa Station to Tokyo Skytree Station. Opened on June 18th, the complex has a total of 14 spaces for restaurants, cafes, speciality shops and a hotel – offering a direct and stylish space along the riverside.

TOKYO mizumachi then adjoins the new ‘SUMIDA RIVER WALK’ – a pedestrian walkway built adjacent to the Tobu SKYTREE Line’s railway bridge across the Sumida River which also has been open to the public since June 18th. The walkway provides a faster and scenic route from Asakusa’s landmark, Sensoji Temple to TOKYO SKYTREE TOWN – an area that is comprised of the commercial complex ‘TOKYO Solamachi’,” office buildings, an aquarium, a planetarium as well as Tokyo’s iconic landmark – TOKYO SKYTREE.

TOKYO SKYTREE- sits at 634-metres high and is the world’s tallest free-standing broadcasting tower. Visitors can enjoy 360° views of the cityscape as they walk up ‘Tembo Galleria’ the spiralled corridor leading to the highest observation point within the tower.

Since reopening on June 1st after being closed during Tokyo’s lockdown, TOKYO SKYTREE has incorporated extensive measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. This includes the compulsory wearing of masks, availability of hand sanitizer, onsite emergency personnel, regular disinfection and extra ventilation within the facilities – A high standard of cleanliness is prioritised to protect all visitors.

‘TOKYO mizumachi’ and ‘SUMIDA RIVER WALK’ together with TOKYO SKYTREE and TOKYO Solamachi will provide visitors with an endless selection of activities and enhance the natural beauty of the surroundings – from the waterside to the skyline.
