We came here to visit the Edo Tokyo museum and the Sumo museum. There are very good food options available close to the metro and JR stations. The 2 museums are well worth visiting.

A lovely area with some wonderful gardens and temple. The story of the fishermen was interesting and it has a wonderful buzz with all the little stalls. Lots of local Japanese go to pray and have their fortune told.

Nice quiet area flanked by really busy districts. Oshiage and sky tree to the west, akihabara to the east. You might come across trainee sump wrestlers strolling along

Ryogoku is famous for Sumo wrestling. On January, May and September 15 days Sumo match is held. Also you can find Chanko restaurant, which is owned by some ex-Sumo wrestlers. 両国国技館と相撲の街、両国は、浅草からも近く隅田川沿いちょっと足を伸ばしてみるのも良いかもしれません。 江戸東京博物館も興味深いですね
