Tokyo Walk: Spending Half a Day in Tennozu Isle

“Tennozu Isle” is a small island between the Megurogawa River and the Keihin Canal in Tokyo. Redeveloped in the second half of the 1980’s, this area has become known as an “art town,” where there are public art works throughout. You will also find a number of former warehouses which have been converted into fashionable cafés and restaurants, as well as popular gadget shops. You can also stroll down the boardwalk while enjoying the open atmosphere of the waterfront.

Tennozu Isle is four minutes by monorail from Hamamatsucho Station or 15 minutes on foot from Shinagawa Station. It is easily accessible, and is a perfect location for short weekend outings. Here are some recommended spots for afternoon walks.
