Some of Shinagawa’s highlights are the lively Gotanda, the Showa Era alleyways of Oimachi and the well-used waterways of its eastern shores. While you’re in the area, check out a few of our top picks for restaurants in Tokyo’s Shinagawa Ward.

Sushiryori Inose

Restaurant, Sushi

Sushiryori Inose is a casual sushi restaurant run by a friendly couple where the omakase, or chef’s choice, is practically mandatory. Both authentic and innovative flavor combinations on offer. Cash only.


Restaurant, Japanese

Oniyamma is a standing room only udon restaurant. They offer cheap and delicious eats and are open late, but standing and slurping your noodles inside the cramped shop isn’t for everyone so come with an open mind.

Restaurant Quintessence

Market, Restaurant, French, Contemporary

This three-Michelin star restaurant serves up Japanese-French fusion cuisines. Restaurant Quintessence’s popularity skyrocketed after it was named one of the 50 best restaurants in Asia by CNN, so reservations are strongly recommended.


Restaurant, Japanese

Toriki is a cozy izakaya great for late night suppers. However it’s prepared, the chicken is the star of the show, and the adventurous should try the toriwasa, often called “chicken sashimi” by English speakers. It gets busy, and reservations are recommended for Fridays and Saturdays.


Restaurant, Pub, Bar, Japanese, Pub Grub

While DevilCraft offers a wide variety of international and domestic favorites, the dish this pub is most proud of is its Chicago-style pizzas. Wash it down with a glass from their impressive selection of craft beers.


Restaurant, European

SOHOLM is a highly-rated Scandinavian-inspired restaurant. The unique menu, friendly staff and picturesque location right on the water make it a place you’ll want to keep coming back to.

Yakatabune&Cruiser Funasei

Restaurant, Japanese

Funasei is a dinner cruise served on a traditional yakatabune, a low, flat boat recognizable by its festive lanterns along the outside. Relax and unwind over your meal while touring Tokyo Bay, stopping to admire top sites like the Rainbow Bridge.

Volcanic Iceland Epic Trip

meet our Local Insider

2 years.


It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
