The Ryogoku District in Tokyo is one of the most visited districts in the city and is popular among locals and visitors for its many sumo wrestler spots, thus earning the monicker “sumo-wrestling town.”
Aside from sumo wrestling, the district is also home to the Edo Tokyo Museum. Established in 1993, it is one of the most popular museums in the city’s history which features the way of life in Tokyo and its people from generations ago. It houses numerous models of towns, figurines and life-sized figures from the Edo, Meiji and Showa periods.
