Southern Tokyo

Shinagawa and surroundings

The South of Tokyo includes the wards of Shinagawa and Ota, notably home of the International airport of Haneda. This vast zone is mostly chosen as an accommodation place because easily accessible by public transportation, which allows travelers to go visiting the heart of the capital or going along the bay.

First of all, the Shinagawa Shinaksen station opens up, from its big ward, on an intersection of multiple possibilities for traveling in all directions. 335,000 people cross it everyday, particularly for the classic travel of the Tokaido towards Kyoto, Osaka and the West of Japan.

Another main train station close to Shinagawa, designed for the architect Kengo Kuma, will open its doors in Spring 2020 serving the direction of Tamachi.

Then the Haneda airport, on the Tokyo bay, offers an entrance and exit door, quick and comfortable for all getaways, international or national.

Finally, by going along the coast, we naturally go towards Yokohama, then Kamakura and Enoshima, before branching off to Hakone and Mt Fuji region if you are willing to discover them.
