Hot dogs are a classic food at American barbeques and diners. On Wednesday, April 6, 2022, Shake Tree Diner introduced the Sumidagawa Dog, which resembles a boat on the Sumida River.
Experience the past, present, and future connected by the Sumida River and its fusion of cultures with a Sumidagawa Dog.


 The Sumidagawa Dog is a pork sausage smoked slowly over cherry wood chips which add a rich aroma and flavor. The cherry wood chips are also a nod to the Sumida River area which is known as a great spot for viewing cherry blossoms.
This nicely crispy dog is served on a toasted bun and can be ordered with or without cheese. You can also add a variety of toppings including jalapeño peppers, relish, and pineapples to create your own version of the Sumidagawa Dog.
 This year’s signature dog is inspired by California style. It’s available for Eat-In only from between April 17, 2023 (Wednesday) and May 6, 2023 (Monday).

About Sumidagawa

Since the Edo period (1603-1867), Tokyo has thrived as a “water city” thanks to its rivers and waterways. The Sumida River has supported people’s lives, and the economy, as the key to water transportation as well as serving as a popular place to gather for events such as cherry blossom viewing and fireworks festivals. Ukiyo-e art and plays from the Edo period show how much the Sumida River was loved by the people of the period.
Over the years, the Japanese culture found along the Sumida River has blended with others from around the world to become well-known and popular among people all over the world.

At Shake Tree Diner

Shake Tree Diner opened in 2020 along with a new shopping area called Tokyo Mizumachi®.

Based on the concept of “valuing local history and culture,” the restaurant displays a glass star-spangled banner created using the traditional Japanese craft of Edo-Kiriko (Edo-faceting) and a traditional Japanese folding screen decorated with a modern art depiction of the flow and diversity of the Sumida River.
These works of art were commissioned and created with the hope that they will represent the diverse cultures, styles and backgrounds of the people who visit Shake Tree Diner.

Sumida Forest

  The “Sumida Forest” project is one of the product development projects of “Sumida Modern,” a community branding project promoted by Sumida Ward for more than 10 years.

  “Sumida Forest” is a recycling-oriented project in which the wood from the trees in Sumida Ward that were cut down is repurposed in the location from which they came. Mr. Haruyuki Manaka from Manaka-Mokkousho, who is the contractor responsible for the beautiful interiors at both Shake Tree locations, is working on this project.

  In order to repurpose trees that were cut down because they interfere with the growth of the surrounding trees, Mr. Manaka offered to create wood plates on which we will serve Sumidagawa Dogs.

  We were inspired by the idea of giving back to the town and city, valuing the connection between the community and people, and wanting to make people happy, and are happy to present the cherry blossom tree plates to give form to this desire. Each plate has a different color, grain expression, and natural texture.

Viewing the Sunset over Ryōgoku Bridge from the Onmayagashi Embankment

Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849), an ukiyo-e artist active in the late Edo period, was born in Sumida-ku, Tokyo, where Shake Tree was founded.

Because of Hokusai’s close connection to Sumida-ku, we’ve used “Viewing the Sunset over Ryōgoku Bridge from the Onmayagashi Embankment” as our inspiration, and the key visual,  for the Sumidagawa Dog.
