The Sumida River which runs through the Eastern part of Tokyo has served as a main artery for river transportation as well as being a favorite fishing spot for bolstering the livelihoods of ordinary people. The river has also been a place of recreation and relaxation, offering opportunities for viewing cherry blossoms and fireworks from boats. Among the various Japanese traditional performing arts which describe the river’s attractions, the performance features Noh plays and traditional Japanese music, both classical masterpieces and new pieces.
