Monument to the opening of Shinagawa Station

Provisional railroad service between Shinagawa and Yokohama started in 1872, preceding the start of regular service between Shimbashi and Yokohama in September of that year. At that time, Shinagawa Station was located a bit to the south of the present location and the station building was on the coast. It is said that it was necessary to close all the windows of the passenger trains because of spray from the seawater splashing off the rocks.
