In June 2020, the TOKYO mizumachi commercial complex opened along with SUMIDA RIVER WALK a waterfront path along the bridge connecting Asakusa and TOKYO SKYTREE® (the world's tallest free-standing tower). The promenade starts at Asakusa Station, crosses the Sumida River – the SUMIDA RIVER WALK, and continues along the Kitajukken River to TOKYO SKYTREE TOWN (http://www.tokyo-skytreetown.jp/english/)SM. As a result, the distance from Asakusa to TOKYO SKYTREE has been shortened, and visitors can enjoy the atmosphere of downtown Tokyo, while avoiding congestion and traffic. TOKYO mizumachi welcomes day-trippers and globetrotters with shops and eateries that embody the Tokyo brand concept of "Old Meets New" in casual restaurants, convenience stores, sports facilities, and even a comfortable and reasonably-priced community-style accommodations, with both dormitory and private rooms - WISE OWL HOSTELS RIVER TOKYO (https://wiseowlhostels.com/ja/rivertokyo/).
