The area along the Tokyo Bay has been home to merchants and common folk since the Edo period, and even now there are many old towns that retain the same sense of spirit and customs. While Fukagawa, Honjo, and Mozennakacho are some of the more famous places, Sumiyoshi is also one of those old fashioned towns. Even now you can enjoy the feel of traditional Japan. Sumiyoshi is 16 minutes to Tokyo and Akihabara stations, 20 minutes to Shinjuku (Toei Shinjuku line), 26 minutes to Shibuya (Hanzomon line).
Come on UP Sumiyoshi is a share house accommodating 7 people near the shopping district, where many of the locals congregate. The living room, roughly 15 tatami in size, is where residents hang out together. The kitchen is L-shaped and big enough for about 2 people to cook at the same time. It is connected to the living room, so you can enjoy cooking while watching TV or talking with other residents.
