Sumida Ward became more popular than ever after the Tokyo Skytree opened there in 2010. After seeing the sights, relax at one of these top bars in the ward.

The legendary Popeye is one of the most popular bars in Ryogoku. They serve a wide variety of craft beers – one of the largest in Tokyo – and offer free appetizers during happy hour (4-6 PM). It can get very busy on Fridays and weekends, so best to have a backup plan in mind.
