'''Shinagawa''' (品川) is one of the 23 wards of central [[Tokyo]], and is also a major railway station in south-central Tokyo. Historically, parts of this ward were known as Shimazuyama. Many feudal lords (''daimyo'') maintained estates in this area during the Tokugawa Shogunate. More recently, this area is the birthplace and former home of Sony.

With the new Shinkansen service to Shinagawa, the area hotels have become much more convenient (and crowded). Rooms at the hotels near the station sell out very quickly. Try Gotanda Station, 2 stops away on the Yamanote Line, for cheaper business hotels or capsules.
