Shinagawa Rekishikan
Shinagawa Rekishikan (Shinagawa Historical Museum)

At the Shinagawa Historical Museum, visitors can enjoy learning about the culture and history of Shinagawa. There are permanent exhibitions, such as those on Shinagawa-shuku (the first post station on the Tokaido road) and the shell mounds of Omori, as well as special exhibitions on the history and attractive qualities of Shinagawa. In addition, the museum serves as a venue where one may study history through classes, hands-on learning events, etc. The museum’s Japanese-style garden, with its traditional Japanese tearoom (called Shoteki-an), affords a view of natural seasonal scenery, making it ideal for a leisurely stroll. Listening to the tones of suikinkutsu (water harps in a cave) is fun, too. Also, Shoteki-an and the museum’s study may be used for traditional cultural activities, such as the tea ceremony.
