This place is popular for weddings so you may well see newly married couples here posing for professional shots. Entrance is free. Multi-layered. A great resting spot in Shinagawa. Nice to couple a stop here with a stroll through the Nature Park, an oasis smack...More

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
