Shinagawa / Gotanda
In Shinagawa, an office district shares space with
luxury residential buildings and the scene is
constantly changing with rapid development. Ikedayama
park and Togoshi park are great places to see
beautiful traditional Japanese gardens with ponds, as
well as enjoy the changing seasons. Shinagawa was a
post and a port town during the Edo era and the lavish
old Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples at Shinagawa

I wore 3/4 length cargo pants and a collared shirt, but not necessarily long pants. Being comfortable, check the local weather report and dress accordingly. Hat was essential for me and study comfortable walking shoes. Enjoy!
