Walking & Biking in Kiyosumi Area Near Sumida River (2) – Cafe, Cafe and Cafe

Yesterday, I wrote about Kiyosumi Garden.  It used to be merchant’s residence and later the founder of Mitsugishi Group built a Japanese garden.  So it is a historic area which tells you the atmosphere of Edo era of 17th and 18th century.  But this area has lots of trendy spots as well.  For example, let me show you newly-built share house Lyuro just off the Kiyosu-bashi Bridge.

Share House Lyuro in Kiyosumi

Share House Lyuro

This share house faces the river and the terrace is accessible for everyone.  There is a cafe on the ground floor where you can buy a coffee and enjoy it in the terrace.

The Terrace of Share House Lyuro

From the terrace, you can have a nice veiw of Kiyosu-bashi Bridge and further up the river, Tokyo Skytree tower.

There are several cool cafes and restaurants in the area.  Some of them are in the renovated old apartment houses which also have galleries, accessory shops and the like.

And at the same time, the street has historic air, too.
