I stayed here about two weeks ago for a few days. I had a single tatami room that was clean and comfortable although minimally furnished (that didn't bother me). The common areas (WC, shower, wash basins) were all very clean, no complaints. My room was very reasonably priced and the staff were approachable, friendly and helpful. I really liked the... More

We have a room with on the first floor with a Main Street view, where always something is happening. Room is rather small like in most of Japanese ryokans. Basic. Walls are green and there are bamboos blinds in the three windows. We have three futons and three little tables in the room. Good thing there is AC because first... More

I stayed 10 days in this Guesthouse.Shinagawa station is very convenient if you have to travel to Central Tokio or other cities in Kanagawa like Yokohama and Kawasaki. Distances in Tokio are colossal, so try to strike a good balance between where you need to go and the choice of your stay. Rooms are very small, but it is Ok.... More

Location : Only takes 10 mins from Shinagawa Station and 2 mins from Kitashinagawa station by walking. Great location with family mart, super market. Close to downtown but the neighborhood is so quiet. Facilities : Sharing but the management are well. Bathrooms and restrooms are clean. Staffs are very friendly and helpful. Everything is basic but cost-performance is very high.... More

Hostel prices a 10 minute walk from a major Yamanote line station - if location on a budget is a priority you'd be pushed to find better than this. A bit far from Shinjuku, though not difficult, but it's within easy reach of Minato-ku/Shibuya-ku if you want to go to Tokyo Tower, Roppongi, Ebisu, Shibuya etc. It's on a very... More

****** The price might be one of the first reasons you are considering this guesthouse. But the friendly and helpful staff, the excellent location as well as the charming traditional Japanese style rooms should be the real reasons for staying at Shinagawashuku. The staff was more than happy to give me directions and some advices about places to go and... More

It is near Shinagawa Station, easy access from the airport and perfect connection to the city of Tokyo. Staff is super friendly and helpfull. Rooms are quiete small but nice. If you considere to stay longer they have a shared house for longer stays and good price! Next to the hostel is a great sushi restaurant.

I highly recommend here to hip travellers who plans to go out for Shibuya, Harajuku, Omotesando or Shinjuku districts. The guest house is located in the quiet area where traditional private shops line the streets. I stayed one night in private room. It was cheap but decent. The staffs could hardly become more nice and friendly, and the room was... More

If you walk south from the west exit of Shinagawa Station, cross the bridge over several tracks and then cross a double set of tracks, you will arrive at a narrow street lined with small shops and restaurants, with lamp posts decorated with hanging paper lanterns. This is the start of the old Tokaido Highway, which connected Edo (Tokyo) with... More

Staying in Shinagawa / Gotanda

Neighborhood 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.
