The Shinagawa Station area undergoing redevelopment

Shinagawa flourished as a hub of transport and trade, owing to its location between the coast and the Yamanote area. Traditionally serving JR commuter trains and shinkansen, as well as the Keikyu Main Line, Shinagawa Station is set to play an even greater role as the future terminal of the Linear Chuo Shinkansen. The station area is full of fun destinations—an aquarium and food theme park within walking distance; Tennozu Isle, a stylish neighborhood of the Tokyo Bay area; shrines and temples including Sengakuji, housing the graves of the forty-seven ronin, aka Ako-gishi, celebrated in tales of Chushingura; a Noh theater; and museums including Japan’s first dedicated to costume. From Shinagawa-ura, yakatabune houseboats offer cruises around Odaiba and Tokyo Skytree.
