Otonashi Shinsui Garden - Ukiyo-e master Utagawa Hiroshige from the Edo Period captured the splendor of this oasis by the Shakujii River in one of his paintings. Onashi Shinsui is one of the Tokyo's "One Hundred Famous Views". Tastefully rebuilt by Kita Ward Tokyo, the rocky oasis is a great relaxation spot right next to Oji Station. Otonashi turns magical at night when the lanterns switch on and the arched bridge in the middle of the park provides a romantic setting. The area was once a natural tributary to the Sumida River though after erosion controls were made the water became fetid, so was channeled into the water system.
