Enjoy all that the transportation hub has to offer, or escape from it all
Shinagawa Ward is a bustling, high-activity area, home to one of the city’s busiest train stations, Shinagawa Station. A 10-minute train ride from Tokyo Station, Shinagawa is extremely convenient when it comes to traveling both in and out of Tokyo. This is largely due to the fact that Shinagawa was the first stop on the main road connecting Tokyo with Kyoto since the Edo Period.
The areas surrounding the station are bursting with restaurants, offices, and shops. There are several shopping malls, but the atré Shinagawa complex is particularly notable. Inside, you can find a wide selection of trendy cafes, restaurants and clothing stores. And to the west of Shinagawa, there is a high-class residential area where the affluent live.

Located 15 minutes on foot from Shinagawa Station, Hara Museum is a gorgeous Western-style residence turned modern art museum with a well-maintained courtyard garden. Unfortunately, the museum is set to close at the end of 2020.
Shinagawa is not all modern, however. For a glimpse of the old Edo and to escape the hustle and bustle of the station areas, visitors love Tokaido Road, which offers a variety of restaurants, bars, affordable guesthouses, and traditional shops. Nearby temples and shrines also offer tranquility and a much-needed break from the city’s busy transportation hub.
The Shinagawa Kumin Park is a great place to go for outdoor recreation. The spacious park has an amazing children’s playground, along with a pool, tennis courts, jogging/bicycle lanes, baseball fields, and more.
Located on top of a small hill, two stops from Shinagawa Station, the Shinagawa Shrine is popular for its large stone torii gate that features unusual carvings of dragons and its small replica of Mt. Fuji.
There’s so much more to Shinagawa than the busy areas surrounding the train station, making it an ideal and convenient location for students who want to learn Japanese.
