Along the banks of the Sumida river (revised)

Sumida-ku is more than just the Tokyo Skytree

Even well-known locations in Tōkyō are always good for some surprises. In this city nothing seems to remain the same (at least not for too long a time), eveything appears to be in a state of permanent change. More or less accidentally I came across one major “update” in the landscape of buildings: The Tōkyō Memorial Hall (東京都慰霊堂 / とうきょうといれいどう) has been refurbished in the meantime. Reason enough to revisit an older posting (published in September 2013). This grand hall, which obviously hadn’t seen any building care to its facade since its reconstruction in 1951 until recently, “suddenly” presents itself in its orginal splendour. It is, by all means, a worthy starting or final point for a walk along the banks of the Sumida river.

Why don’t you join me for a little adventure…
