What you should know about Shinbashi

From swampy marshland to derelict railway freight yards, to a sea of futuristic skyscrapers, Shinbashi has taken an intriguing path to becoming one of Tokyo's top business districts. And while activity here today is dominated by the turning wheels of commerce, there are museums, theaters, and a vibrant nightlife to enjoy. There's also a 1970s skyscraper that's become an icon and a seaside park that's the site of a 17th-century shogun villa. As with much of Tokyo, scratch beneath the surface and you'll be surprised at what shines through.

Hotels in Shinbashi

Accommodation in Shinbashi ranges from small guest houses, in its densely packed residential blocks, to luxury business establishments in the shiny new business district of Shiodome. Luxury Shinbashi hotels can be found south and west of Shimbashi train station. The Mitsui Garden Hotel Shiodome Italia-gai is one of the more affordable of these, notable for its good-sized rooms, spa, and Italian cuisine. Central to Shinbashi is the Hotel Sunroute Shinbashi, praised both for its location and efficient service. The four-star Park Hotel Tokyo is a shimmering glass-fronted tower overlooking Tokyo Bay. Shinbashi hotel reviews praise its stunning 10-story atrium, first-class service, and amazing views of Tokyo Tower.

Things to see in Shinbashi

Although commerce dominates many areas of Shinbashi, you'll discover a host of intriguing sights here too. One of the oddest is the Nakagin Capsule Tower, a bizarre-looking vision of the future from the 1970s. It is constructed from capsules stacked on top of one another, each just 7-feet by 12-feet. It was hoped they'd be ideal homes for Tokyo's bachelor “salary-men,” but today most are unoccupied. The reconstructed Shimbashi Station is another architectural oddity. It's a faithful reproduction of the 1872 station, complete with an old steam locomotive. Shiodome is worth a walk around, just to admire its towers to commerce like the Nittele Tower or Shiodome City Center. Afterward, you can indulge in a spot of luxury shopping and dining at the Caretta Shiodome retail complex. Lastly, for a breath of fresh air, head east to the sea-facing Hamarikyu Gardens where the villa of the Shogun Tokugawa family once stood.

Good for all travelers

Business travelers obviously make up a large proportion of those coming to stay in Shinbashi hotels, but there really is something for everyone here. The nightlife of central Shinbashi, with its hole-in-the-wall bars and takatori (grilled chicken) stalls are great for fun-seekers. Couples will love the chance to take in a Kabuki performance at a local theater, followed by fine dining in one of the area's many top-rated hotel restaurants. There are budget eateries and accommodation for the cost-conscious, while the seafront offers quiet, well-to-do districts that many families will appreciate.

How to get to Shinbashi

Shinbashi is home to one of Tokyo’s larger train stations, as well as linking into the Ginza and Asakusa metro lines. To get here from Narita International Airport, you could catch Narita-Airport International Limousine Bus, changing at Tokyo Station onto the JR Tokaido Line, arriving after some 90 minutes. Alternately, if you don't mind paying a little more, take the Skyliner fast-train service to Nippori Station, switching to the Keihin Tohoku Line. You will see your travel to Shinbashi cut by 30 minutes. Travel in and around the district is easy enough both by foot and on Tokyo's ubiquitous metro.
