Shinagawa Station (品川駅 shinagawa-eki ?) is the first major station south of Tokyo Station and is a major interchange for trains operated by JR East, JR Central and Keikyū. The Tōkaidō Shinkansen and other trains to the Miura Peninsula, Izu Peninsula and the Tōkai region of Honshū pass through here. It is known as the southern gateway to Tokyo. Despite its name, it is not located in Shinagawa Ward but just to the north in Minato Ward.

This station is just south of a large yard complex consisting of Shinagawa Carriage Sidings, Shinagawa Locomotive Depot, and Tamachi Depot.



Shinagawa is served by the following lines:

Shinagawa is also the planned terminal for JR Central's Chūō Shinkansen Maglev train, which is scheduled to begin service to Nagoya in the year 2025.

Station layout

The Keikyū line platforms are on the western side of the station at a higher level than the JR platforms. Some Keikyū line trains terminate at Shinagawa while others continue on to join the Toei Asakusa line at Sengakuji.

The main JR station concourse is situated above the platforms running east-west across the breadth of the station. A freely traversable walkway, providing a valuable pedestrian link between divides the restricted station areas into two sections. The southerly section contains a number of shops and market-style stalls which form the "e-cute" station complex.

Shinagawa is one of Japan's oldest stations, opened on June 12, 1872 (Gregorian calendar) when the service between Shinagawa and Yokohama provisionally started, four months before the inauguration of "Japan's first railway" between Shimbashi and Yokohama through Shinagawa on October 14, 1872. This line is a part of the Tōkaidō Main Line. Nothing remains of the original structure.

Later on March 1, 1885, the Yamanote Line started operation. Takanawa station of the Keikyu Line (then Keihin Railway Line) opened on March 11, 1924 across the street from Shinagawa station. Takanawa station was renamed Shinagawa station and moved to the current site on April 1, 1933.

The station concourse on the eastern side of the station (located above the platforms) was extensively redeveloped in 2003 in connection with the construction of the Shinkansen platforms and also to improve access to the new commercial development "Shinagawa Intercity" (品川インターシティ[1]).
