The Development Continues: Takanawa/Sengakuji Area
The reputation of Takanawa/Sengakuji area as a quiet residential neighborhood belies its location, situated as it is in the southeast corner of Minato City within walking distance of both Takanawa Gateway and Shinagawa Stations on JR Yamanote Line. The condominium towers that line Sakurada-dori on the area’s west side are home to people with a fascinating array of backgrounds.
In 2020 Takanawa Gateway Station opened for service in this area, becoming the first new station on Yamanote Line in half a century. With the station’s opening, the Takanawa/Sengakuji area once again became a center of attention.
Takanawa Gateway Station was designed by Kengo Kuma, the architect who designed the National Stadium. In the environs of the new station, multiple redevelopment projects are under way. From the frenzy of these projects, office towers, hotels and an international conference center are rising up, with increased demand for housing in the area expected to follow.
Even before the advent of Takanawa Gateway Station, the area’s access and convenience were excellent. Nearby Shinagawa Station includes shinkansen platforms and affords excellent links to Haneda Airport. In front of Shinagawa Station is a multi-purpose complex with stores, a movie theater and an aquarium to enjoy, making the area a hub for entertainment as well as transportation.
