Constantly evolving new urban centers and international business hubs: Shinagawa

The Shinagawa area has been the focus of much attention due to its great potential in terms of initiatives such as plans for the construction of a new station on the JR Yamanote Line and the concept of it being home to the first station on a maglev train line. Shinagawa developed into a prosperous town hundreds of years ago as the first station on the Tokaido road (the route that linked Tokyo and Kyoto at that time), and since then it has become an important transportation hub through which many people, goods and information pass. This attractive area will continue to grow as an international business hub owing to its international strategic zone, concentration of global companies, traffic convenience and large number of hotels. At the same time, it also offers an urban living environment with its many high-rise apartments.
