Living in Shibaura, Shiodome - Tokyo Bayside

Shibaura and Shiodome Area are waterfront locations on Tokyo Bay, which spread out from the area around Hama-rikyu Gardens on the east side of Hamamatsucho Station to the area on the east side of Tamachi Station and on the north side of Shinagawa Station, all on the same Yamanote Line. There are various rental apartments that are suitable for foreigners.

Shibaura Area

The Shibaura area located on the east side of Tamachi Station has been redeveloped and improved to create a waterside urban environment. “Shibaura Island”, which consists of 4 tower apartments, has become a symbolic landmark in the townscape of the Shibaura area. The redevelopment plan around the area of Tokyo's Tamachi Station and Shinagawa Station, where the Tamachi Gateway Station was constructed in 2020, is currently in progress.

In the area around the east exit of Tamachi Station, msb Tamachi–a commercial complex consisting of offices, hotel, and retail shops–has begun partial operation in 2018, creating increasing expectations for further development in the area.

 

Kaigan Area

The Kaigan area is a long area extending from the north to the south, located to the east of Shibaura along the Tokyo Bay waterfront. The Kaigan area is lined with various office buildings and warehouses that are related to Takeshiba Wharf, Hinode Pier, and Shibaura Wharf. This is also a very popular residential area due to its ease of access to Central Tokyo and its scenic views overlooking Tokyo Bay and Rainbow Bridge. The Takeshiba area, around the east exit of Hamamatsucho Station, has high potential for dramatic improvement and change in the future as it currently has various redevelopment programs underway to establish the area as an international business hub.

 

Shiodome Area

The Shiodome area has flourished since olden days as a town close to Ginza, Shinbashi, and Tsukiji. The area around the section of town named “Shiodome Shiosite”–one of the area’s redevelopment projects–has become one of the major business hubs of Tokyo. To the east of Shiodome Shiosite is “Hamarikyu Gardens”, which is nationally recognized as a “Special Place of Science Beauty and a Special Historic Site of Japan”. The scenery of neighboring high-rise buildings stretching to the sky behind a beautiful Japanese garden is becoming one of the alluring features of Shiodome.
