Shinagawa Station opened in 1872 at the dawn of Japan's railroad history. Since then, the station has continued to develop over the past 150 years as a terminal station connecting Tokyo and other parts of Japan. The west side of the station is lined with long-established city hotels, and behind them is a quiet residential area with many luxury residences. The east side of the station, on the other hand, used to be the sea when the railroad first opened. In recent years, redevelopment has resulted in the construction of high-rise buildings one after another, and the area is becoming more and more vibrant every day. The southern gateway to Tokyo, which boasts one of the highest passenger volumes in the world, is always crowded with commuters and tourists.
The city of Shinagawa is located in the south of central Tokyo. Located at the mouth of the Meguro River where it empties into Tokyo Bay, Shinagawa prospered as a post town on the Tokaido Highway during the Edo period (1603-1868). Since the first railroad in Japan opened in 1872, the city has continued to develop as a terminal station connecting Tokyo and the provinces. Shinagawa is the perfect base for a stay with easy access to many places. It is also a popular tourist area with a variety of attractions such as a seaside boardwalk, a fashionable brewery, and a state-of-the-art aquarium.
