Sumida (Japanese Japanese (Japanese: 日本語, ') is a language of as-yet unknown origins spoken by over 127 million people, mainly in Japan, but also by Japanese emigrant communities around the world.
It is considered an agglutinative language and is distinguished by a complex system of honorifics—a reflection of the highly hierarchical nature of Japanese society—which has resulted in specific verbal forms which indicate the relative status of the speaker to the listener, as well as respect (or lack thereof) to the person being spoken of.
If completed as planned, Sumida Tower would be the tallest free-standing tower in the world at 610m (2,001 ft), displacing the CN Tower in Toronto, and would also be the tallest man-made structure in Japan.
