"Sumida-ku" was existence to be hardly given in koho for destination of school excursion until now. However, in fact, destination of school excursion includes a lot of suitable places in Sumida-ku. At first it is "manufacturing experience" to make industrial products only in folkcraft and Sumida-ku conveying the skill of artisan who has been inherited from the Edo era in now with hand of oneself of student.
