Recommended restaurants at Sumiyoshi Station

① Noodles Rikyuu
This is the place where I had my first ever Tsukemen, noodles accompanied by soup for dipping.
The soup has a nice fish powder scent. There is more fish powder in a container on each table, so people can add as much as they want. (within reason, of course)
It is where my love for Tsukemen started, so if you have a chance, I definitely recommend it.

② Noodles Nakagawakai
This is another Tsukemen restaurant. It serves very delicious seafood and pork-based soup Tsukemen.
You can also have the soup left in your bowl turned into curry and rice when you ask for “Karehen Rice”.
It is very delicious so don’t miss it.


Major commercial facilities near Sumiyoshi Station

[Tiara Koto]
As the name Tiara suggests, the building is shaped like a crown.
It is widely used as a venue for artistic and cultural activities, conferences and exhibitions.
The Coming-of-Age ceremony for Koto Ward residents is normally held here at the Tiara. I myself had my own Coming-of-Age ceremony here at the Tiara.
And, on a more personal note, I have been taking piano lessons since I was a child, and I often had piano recitals here. I feel so nostalgic.

Celebrities perform concerts, piano recitals, or Rakugo events, which makes this a true multi-purpose venue.
You may want to check the schedule of the Tiara before your holiday or anytime you are near.
