Located in the superb Sumida Ward and redeveloped in 2012, thanks to the building of Tokyo Skytree and its surrounding complex, Oshiage has become a cultural icon of Tokyo. Discover Oshiage and follow the Oshiage line to get to different locations in Tokyo.
What Oshiage Tokyo is offering
Oshiage is located right in the core of east Tokyo, linked to many landmarks in the 23 wards and beyond, and right next to the 634-meter Tokyo Skytree, a famous Tokyo landmark.
The Oshiage Skytree surrounding area
In 2012, the Oshiage Skytree was opened to the public and placed Oshiage on each Tokyo map. Under the tower is Tokyo Solamachi, a big complex that houses the entire family's multiple operations.
You can bring your children (or large children!) to visit the Skytree Town Pokemon Center and lose yourself in the greatness of Pokemon. Or visit the Sumida Aquarium and see the penguins, or drop over ice-skating on the Winter complex's roof at a specially built ice rink.
