160301-0026 - Shinagawa Station


Tokyo Meiji 1880s Kuichi Uchida
Shinagawa Station in Tokyo. Japan’s first daily train services started on June 12, 1872 (Meiji 5) between this station and Yokohama.

Tokyo Bay still reaches to the station. In the 20th century, almost all of the sea visible in this photograph would be filled in.

The covered footbridge was most likely built sometime around 1882 (Meiji 15), dating this photo to after that date.
