Land of the Rising Sun (week 3: Sumida Park, Skytree)

We visited Sumida Park to check out the yabusame, a traditional event involving mounted archery.

Incidentally, the venue also has a clear view of the tallest structure in Japan: the Skytree. At 634 meters, it's almost twice as tall as the older Tokyo Tower which stands at 333 meters. Admittedly, it's not (yet) as iconic, but time will tell if that would change.
