Commemorative monument of the Shinagawa Station foundation
Add to MyRoute
Before the train service started between Shimbashi and Yokohama in September 1872, a temporary service started between Shinagawa and Yokohama in May. The Shinagawa Station at the time was a little more to the south than it is now, and the station building was located on a beach. All the passenger car windows had to be closed to avoid the splashing seawater hitting the rocks.
