Tokyo/Shiodome

The hypermodern streets of Shiodome

Shiodome (汐留) is a district of the Minato ward of central Tokyo, Japan.

Understand

One of the newest quarters of the city, almost entirely built after 2000, Shiodome has been transformed from a derelict railway cargo terminal to a miniature city of skyscrapers. Parts of the area still remain under construction but most is now open.

Name

The name "Shiodome" is pronounced /ʃí:.ə.dò.meɪ/ in English & spelt "しおどめ" in Hiragana. It means keeping out the tide in Japanese & does not refer to a dome.

Get in

Shiodome is directly accessible via Shiodome station on the Yurikamome new transit and Toei O-Edo subway lines. The bigger train hub of Shinbashi, on the JR Yamanote line, is also within easy walking distance. All buildings are connected together by an underground concourse and a web of walkways.
