Living in Shinagawa, Konan - Tokyo Bayside

The Shinagawa Konan Area covers the waterfront location on the Tokyo Bay that spreads out on the eastern side of the Shinagawa Station. The majority of the area falls under the address of Konan, Minato-ku. Since the addition of Shinagawa Station as a stop on the Tokaido Shinkansen Line in 2003, various high-rise buildings such as “Shinagawa Grand Commons” and “Shinagawa Intercity” have been constructed around the Konan Exit of the station. The area has since developed into one of the major business hub in Japan. Shortly after being added as a stop on the Tokaido Shinkansen Line, the area was also developed as a residential area for people who work in Central Tokyo, with various large tower apartments such as “Shinagawa V Tower” and “World City Towers” being built one after another.

One of the allures of the Shinagawa Konan Area is its waterfront location which provides sweeping views overlooking Tokyo's cityscape and the Tokyo Bay all the while remaining nearby Shinagawa Station, the gateway to Central Tokyo. In the near future, a new JR station named “Takanawa Gateway” Station is expected to open in the year 2020 on the west side area of 1-chome, Konan. The development for a new town is planned around the new station in turn creating an increase expectations for further development in the area.
