Summary

Do you know Fukagawa?

Located on the east side of Sumidagawa river in Koto ward. The culture of Edo still subsist in this age.

This is also the place where Basho, the famous poet author of classic Okuno-hosomichi lived in his later year. 500 years ago, when Ieyasu Tokugawa, the founder of the Edo shogunate first came to this area, Fukagawa was marsh. But it was filled in to provide new land for the city and farming. Hachiro Uzaemon Fukagawa, a native of Osaka city developed the area and named the village after himself. This was the roots of Fukagawa.

Now it is a peaceful downtown with a taste of old Tokyo. An alley takes you back in time to old. Follow your nose through the small shopping arcade of low fronted stores to the shop sells short neck clams boiled in soy sauce a savory treat has been popular hundred of years.


Specific schedule of the tour:
First of all, I pick you up at your hotel or the nearest station.

Kiyosumi garden, sometimes also known as Kiyosumi Gardens, has been open to the public since 1932. Rare landscape stones from all over Japan are on display for guests, making it stand out from other gardens in the area. Stepping stone paths are set in the pond, where you can enjoy a closeup view of the turtles and fish that inhabit it.

Fukagawa Edo Museum has a real-sized reconstruction of the Fukagawa Sagacho area which lets you see the everyday life of common people during the Edo period.

Tomioka Hachiman-gu Shrine is famous for its golden mikoshi (divine palanquin) and sumo-related history.

Fukagawa Fudō-dō, which belongs to the esoteric Shingon sect, is very much an active temple. Fire rituals (called 'goma') take place daily in an auditorium in the Hondō (Main Hall), at 9am, 11am, 1pm, 3pm and 5pm, plus 7pm on festival days (1st, 15th, 28th of each month).
