Getting to Hibiya Park From Shimbashi
People coming from places west of Tokyo such as HAMAMATSU, NAGOYA, KYOTO and OSAKA, getting off from SHIMBASHI STATION to get to the park is often picked. First start from HIbiya Exit where you can see a plaza with a locomotive train car called SL Hiroba. Turn rightward along the road just behind the locomotive train car. Then you will soon meet the wide road. Turn left and walk northward about a few minutes. You will see a huge intersection and from there you can see a part of the park. Turn rightward crossing the road twice and you will reach the Saiwai Gate of the park.

Getting to Tokyo Tower(from Hamamatsucho Station)
The easiest and surest way to get to Tokyo Tower is from Hamamatsucho station of Yamanote Line. Hamamatsucho station happens to be the end of Tokyo Monorail Haneda airport line. If you come from Haneda airport, in particular, this way is useful. It takes about 10 to 15 minutes on foot to the Tokyo Tower. After getting off from Hamamatsucho Station, walk westward toward Shiba Park and Zojoji temple. If you go straight to the wide road right beside the World Trade Center Building you will see the old gate called Sangedatsumon Gate. Zojoji temple is a nice temple worth visiting and the photo of the main hall with the backdrop of Tokyo Tower behind is often picked as the photo representing Tokyo. After enjoying the visit to the Zojoji temple go out the gate and enter the Shiba park and walk the road to get behind the temple then you will see the entrance of Tokyo tower.
Shinagawa Station: Overview
One of the wonders of Tokyo is that name of the station and the name of the ward does not always correspond. Shinagawa station is surprisingly located in Minato-ku, not Shinagawa-ku. Shinagawa also has a Shinkasen stop and some hikari express trains stop there. By using Shinagawa station going to Shinjuku, Shibuya, Meguro, Tokyo Tower and Roppongi Hills got much easier. Recently the area around Shinagawa station has been redeveloped and most notable of which is Epson Shinagawa Aqua Stadium.
Address: 3-chome Takanawa Minato-ku

Meguro station is one of the Yamanote Loop Line stations and it is also a gateway to Southwestern part of Minato Ward often nicknamed as Shirokanedai. Shirokanedai area has some popular destinations such as Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum and Shizen-Kyoikuen(The Institute of Nature Study). To get there, go out the station from East Exit.
From West Exit you can visit some of the Meguro ward attraction such as Meguro Gajoen, Daienji Temple, Meguro Fudoson, and Meguro Parasitological Museum. (See my Meguro page to get to know about these attractions). My Minato page focuses on what lies ahead in East side of Meguro station.
Changing from Hanzomon to Ginza Line
When you go to Ueno from Sangenjaya , for example, by using Hanzomon Line, change trains at Omote Sando to Ginza Line because at that station two lines are running parallely. When you get off from the train car all you have to do is pop in the car at the other side. It is much easier than in Shibuya station.
