This small shopping street is quite close to Shinagawa station and at the back of the railway line that goes to Yokohama. It is very typical of small shopping streets in Tokyo and probably one of the lesser interesting ones.

A nice, quaint street with a nice traditional Japanese feel. We found a nice patisserie (Kyo-An) that had the best Mille Feuille that we ever had. This street is a nice place to stroll if you are staying in the Shinagawa area.

It is a typical Japanese shopping street and not special at all and there are far more interesting places around to get the flor of older Tokyo. If you near the areas visit but do not expect a lot. The Kita Shinagawa station is small is nearby but it is best to walk from Shinagawa but better still visit the... More

The festival features parades consisting of people in colorful and authentic Edo-period clothing. The first parade, held Saturday afternoon, is for "oiran." Oiran were the female entertainers of the Edo period, and were the predecessors of the geisha. The Oiran on parade wear beautiful... More

This is a nice street to walk down and look at the beautiful shops and houses. It is not a touristy area so almost nothing is in English. We've walked through here several times around sunset and really enjoyed the ambience. As always, there is plenty of good food available if you can understand the menus.

Staying in Shinagawa / Gotanda

Neighbourhood Profile
Shinagawa / Gotanda
In Shinagawa, an office district shares space with luxury residential buildings and the scene is constantly changing with rapid development. Ikedayama park and Togoshi park are great places to see beautiful traditional Japanese gardens with ponds, as well as enjoy the changing seasons. Shinagawa was a post and a port town during the Edo era and the lavish old Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples at Shinagawa and Ebara are very popular. It's a great place to get in touch with the old Edo atmosphere on a pleasure boat cruising along the canal. The neighboring area around Gotanda station is a study in modern contrasts filled with unique restaurants and a lively nightlife.
