History

Shinagawa is one of Japan's oldest stations, opened on June 12 1872 (Gregorian calendar) when the service between Shinagawa and Yokohama provisionally started, fourmonths before the inauguration of "Japan's first railway" between Shimbashi and Yokohama through Shinagawa on October 14, 1872. This line is a part of the Tōkaidō Main Line.Nothing remains of the original structure.

Later on March 1, 1885, the Yamanote Line started operation. Takanawa station of the Keikyu Line (then Keihin Railway Line) opened on March 11, 1924 across the street from Shinagawa station. Takanawa station was renamed Shinagawa station and moved to the current site on April 1, 1933.

The station concourse on the eastern side of the station (located above the platforms) was extensively redeveloped in 2003 in connection with theconstruction of the Shinkansen platforms and also to improve access to thenew commercial development "Shinagawa Intercity" (品川インターシティ [http://www.sicity.co.jp/] ).
