Takanawa Gateway – Your Ultra-Convenient Access to Tokyo’s Metropolitan District
The Takanawa Gateway Station was built with the purpose of welcoming both local and international visitors, serving as a gateway to Tokyo and Shinagawa (品川). It is conveniently serviced by the Yamanote Line, which encircles central Tokyo, and the Keihin-Tōhoku Line, which runs from Saitama through Tokyo to Yokohama. The station is located on the Tokaido Main Line and falls within the fare zone of both the Yamanote Line (東京山手線内) and the Tokyo Metropolitan District (東京都区内), providing ultra-convenient access throughout Tokyo.
