Tsukuda Island

Tsukuda Island, also known as the original place of food called Tsukudni, is situated in Eastern Tokyo and has 300 years of fishermen history.  Back then, the Shogun brought them to Tokyo from Osaka.  For whatever reason this was, it has turned out to be a good thing.  To get here, you can take the Yurakucho subway line, The name of the station is Tsukishima.  Today, you can still feel the atmosphere of the Edo period when you walk around the town by the Sumida river. You flash back to 300 years ago and you literally feel the air from the Edo Period in tranquility.  The contrast between the old charm and the modern high rise buildings are mysteriously coexisting quietly.  You see children playing, a man riding a bicycle, an old man gazing at the water, young people jogging by the river.  You will discover  hidden shrines in the narrow alleys and dead ends. The canal has an old bridge you can walk over.  Enjoy your walk.
