Shinbashi and Shiodome

Shinbashi and Shiodome JR Shinbashi station is located about 2 km south-southwest of Tokyo station.
Generally the west side of the station is called "Shinbashi", and the east side is called "Shiodome".

Shinbashi is a traditional business district, and is densely-packed with many multi-tenant buildings.
Espacially around Shinbashi station, there are a lot of pubs, bars and eating places. In the evening many businessmen drop in there by their way home from work.

Shiodome is the new redevelopment zone named "Sio-Site", and many skyscrapers have been built here since 2004.
They have many business offices, shops and restaurants, and there are 4 hotels in this area.

Originally, Shinbashi was the Japan's first railroad station opened in 1872, and it had been the main Station of Tokyo until current Tokyo station was completed in 1914. After that, it had been a wide cargo station of the national railroad until 1986.
So "Railway History Exhibition Hall" has been opened at the place of old Shinbashi Station in current Shiodome area. (At just north of Shiodome City Center building)

From Shinbashi station, we can reach Ginza, Tsukiji, Hamarikyu Gardens and Hibiya park within only 1 km.
And there is the terminal station of Yurikamome, a Automated Guideway Transit, in front of the east exit of JR Shinbashi station.
It leads to Odaiba area through Sio-Site.
