A town steeped in history yet open to change, KITAHON has long been a gateway to Tokyo.

During the Kamakura period, Shinagawa prospered through trade. It would later become a transportation hub called “Shinagawa-juku” during the Edo period.
At the time, “Edomae” seafood was famous, and Shinagawa transformed into a resort area where people enjoyed leisure activities such as clamming and boating.

Japan’s first railway began operating during the Meiji period, which enabled Shinagawa to contribute to the development of Japan as the Keihin Industrial Zone.
Continuing to change with the times, the city has maintained a welcoming atmosphere for foreign visitors and cultures. Throughout the years, the shopping district has supported the lives of its residents.

The city’s current landscape, where traditional roads and back alleys coexist with high-rise buildings and condominiums, is preserved through the tireless efforts of people who love their home.

There has been a tradition in Shinagawa of enjoying festivals for over 400 years, and residents of KITAHON still love their festivals. If you’re lucky, you might see festival preparations or even an actual festival during your stay.
