Landings are situated near notable sights and places of entertainment, from Nihonbashi and Asakusa, areas full of history and tradition, to the popular Odaiba. This section looks at the joys of the Tokyo Bay area, from waterfront restaurants and shopping to waterside cultural experiences.
This area fuses the charms of the new and the old. Go sightseeing in the lively shitamachi (downtown) area around TOKYO SKYTREE, rent a kimono and take a stroll around Asakusa, and get a taste of history and culture in the sumo district of Ryogoku.
Toyosu is a manmade island that was built for housing, entertainment, and recreation in the Tokyo waterfront area. It is also home to the world's largest fish market, which contains lots of fantastic seafood restaurants.
Travelers can also enjoy shopping and relaxing at the LaLaport Toyosu oceanside complex, take a stroll around Toyosu Park, which has a children’s playground and lawn, or have a wonderful time with friends at DIY barbecue spaces, like Toyosu Gururi Park.
Nihonbashi flourished as the center of the premodern city of Edo. Highlights include established and renowned restaurants, new commercial facilities, and casual experiences of traditional Japanese culture. Stroll along the streets while admiring historic buildings, and take part in fun events like the Sakura Fes Nihonbashi and the Nihonbashi-Kyobashi Festival.
This area is home to a spectrum of entertaining spots. Visit Hama-rikyu Gardens, with classical landscape architecture from feudal Japan; Maxell Aqua Park Shinagawa and the Shinagawa Aquarium, perfect for families and couples; high-grade hotels and museums; and restaurants commanding a night view of Tokyo Bay.
Shinagawa & Tennozu
This area retains the mood of the stylish and creative shitamachi area of Edo-period Tokyo (1603-1868). Explore the tiny alley of Tsukishima Monja Street and savor the signature shitamachi dish of monjayaki pancakes. Fukagawa highlights include Narita-san Fukagawa-fudo Temple, Kiyosumi Gardens, and Tomioka Hachimangu Shrine—host of one of the three major festivals of Edo, the Fukagawa Hachiman Festival.
Odaiba is home to countless recreational destinations, large commercial facilities, and Odaiba Marine Park. Savor trending dishes and have fun at an indoor theme park and museum all day long, until Rainbow Bridge and the skyline sparkle against the night sky and Tokyo Bay.
This Tokyo waterfront area attracts lively crowds, including families, thanks to the 718 cherry trees of Shinkawa, the Tokyo Sea Life Park, and Kasai Rinkai Park. Facing Tokyo Bay, this area features Japan's largest Ferris wheel, complete with a barbecue field.
