Shinagawa Station Area
Located at the southern end of the Yamanote Line – the convenient loop line that circles through Tokyo – Shinagawa Station is a major transport hub and entertaining area in its own right. Most conveniently, Shinagawa is only 20-minutes by train from Haneda Airport and a stop on the Tokaido Shinkansen running from Tokyo to Nagoya and onto Kyoto and Osaka.
The area around the station is largely a commercial and residential area and doesn’t have much in terms of sight-seeing. It does however offer easy access to the popular event spaces of Tokyo Big Sight and Tokyo Teleport, and offers a good range of restaurants and some excellent hotels including The Strings by InterContinental and Conrad Tokyo, along with a good range of mid-range and budget options.
If you need to be at Haneda Airport early or are arriving a little late and don’t fancy staying in and around the airport, the Shinagawa Station area is a good option. You’ll find a greater range of hotels – including high-end accommodation – and a good assortment of restaurants or easy access into other areas of Tokyo for one last night of fun.
