Bonus! Enjoy the great view of Tokyo Skytree from the balcony✩
While Fukagawa, Honjo, and Mozennakacho are some of the more notable places. The Tokyo Bay has been home to merchants and common folk since the Edo period. Many historic towns retain the same sense of spirit and customs. Sumiyoshi is one of those historical towns where you can enjoy the feeling of traditional Japan.
Come on UP Sumiyoshi is a seven-person sharehouse near a shopping district. The living room is the size of about fifteen tatami mats. It’s a communal space for residents, and there are usually sweets and souvenirs brought home by someone. The kitchen is an L-shaped system that allows two people to cook at the same time. Because it is connected to the living room, you can cook while watching TV or talking with housemates. On the rooftop, you can BBQ with your housemates while looking at Tokyo Skytree. With the natural wind and some shade, it’s also a great place to cool off in the summer.
We have housemates from France, Italy, Morocco, and Japan. These friendly international housemates gather almost daily in the living room to watch TV or just to hang out. They will make you feel welcome.
At the monthly house meeting led by the house manager, housemates can discuss the distribution of cleaning duties and house rules over dinner. Sometimes another sharehouse can join in. We can all catch up on each other’s lives.
