Located in the northern part of Sumida Ward, Higashi Shirahige Park is a long and narrow park along the east side of the Sumida River, full of greenery.

It serves as a disaster prevention center for the surrounding area (commonly known as the Koto Delta area), and a disaster prevention stockpile is located nearby, which will function as an evacuation site in the event of a disaster.

In spring, rows of cherry trees are in full bloom, and in May, the Sumida Carp Streamer Fair is held, where more than 450 carp streamers can be seen swimming in the sky.

Nearby is Tokyo Sky Tree, the tallest tower in Japan at 634 meters, which can be seen from the park.
