A major business center and transport interchange, Shinagawa holds some surprising attractions behind its modern facade. The industrial Tennozu Isle area is fast becoming a must for lovers of street art, with bold murals and graffiti, along with craft beer and hip restaurants.
This very modern aquarium uses light, color and augmented reality to enhance your experience. From the illuminated columns of jellyfish to the popular dolphin shows, there's a lot to see here. You can even ride a marine-themed carousel or a swinging pirate ship.
This beautiful 1930s home is one of the city's best regarded contemporary art museums. Explore the art deco mansion as you admire the exhibitions, then take lunch or tea in the private, semi-circular courtyard. The popular cakes are themed to the current exhibition.
This former industrial site has become hip, thanks to an influx of micro-breweries, galleries and cool restaurants. Don't miss the giant murals on many streets, and check out the amazing Pigment art supply shop. Take a break at T.Y.Harbor for brews with a view.
