Tokyo/Shinbashi

Shinbashi (also Romanized as Shimbashi) (新橋) is a district of central Tokyo which is a significant business center and commercial area, although not quite as busy as Shinjuku or Shibuya to the west.

Shinbashi is directly adjacent to Shiodome, and within a slightly longer walking distance of Ginza and Tsukiji.

Get in

By train

Shimbashi Station is on the JR Yamanote, Keihin-Tōhoku, Yokosuka, and Tokaido Lines. It is also a connection point to the Toei Asakusa subway line for Haneda Airport (Keikyu through trains, ¥610, 30 min.), plus the Ginza subway line and the Yurikamome line to Odaiba. The multitude of lines makes it easy to reach from Narita Airport via the Keisei Skyliner and Yamanote lines (Yamanote line, change at Nippori, ¥2,080, 75 min.), Keisei limited express and Asakusa lines (Toei Asakusa line, change at Aoto, ¥1,100, 90 min.) or Narita Express and Yokosuka lines (change at Tokyo, ¥2,910, 75 min.).

Nearby Hamamatsucho station connects directly to Haneda Airport (¥470) via the Tokyo Monorail.
