On the platform of the Shonan Shinjuku Liner, Rinkai Line and Saikyo Line at Shibuya Station. The platform for the Yamanote Line is further up in the distance.
After being delayed by the Yamanote Line stopping last week, after the
Shibuya Streets photo shoot, I decided to catch the train to Osaki and then walk to my destination of Shinagawa. The walk was mainly through Gotenyama, which you can see more of in the following photos.
Getting off at Osaki to walk towards Shinagawa. With the Station on my left, the road here goes dips down under this walkway. Nice and close, big city feel.
They had some interesting spinning balls on the walkway. Cool feature. I didn't see anyone else stop to take a look at them.
I like the view of the buildings through the trees over the water. My eye blurred the tree out a bit more than the camera. I wonder what f/ stop my eye was set on?
There are still quite a few old factories and buildings in the Osaki area. There were a few printing and dye companies around.
A mix of companies, factories and apartments all in the same area.
This Post Office looked really tiny. I wonder what the history behind its placement here was.

The walk bridge to cross over the main road - Gotenyama walkbridge.
A bit of construction going on here. Looks like a big project.
The construction cuts through this small road. The houses at the top of this street look quite expensive.
A better look at the construction site. Lots of machinery at work in amongst the manual labor.
I turned around to take a break and see where I had come from here. It is always easy to find a tall building that you passed and then work out where you have come from.
Almost went passed this building without realizing it was the home of the Japan Hula Association.
A policebox (koban) tucked into the corner of the street. It has quite a bit of charm about it.
Mitsubishi Kaitoukaku, the old Iwasaki Estate. Lots of land, lots of history and only accessible if you ware a member of the Mitsubishi exclusive club.
Have a look at
this photo from the air to see what is behind the gates.
Very nice wall here that runs around the Mitsubishi Kaitoukaku Estate.
Looking back towards Shinagawa down the Dai Ichi Keihin road.
The road on the left cuts back under the one on the right. You can see the Gotenyama Trust Towers in the background as well.

The old Tokaido Route passed through here.
Walking the bridge of the old Tokaido Route.
A quick glimpse of the Keihin Tohoku Line under the bridge. Lots of rails here. Busy area for trains.
The Keihin Kyuko Line passes a level crossing as it heads towards Shinagawa Station.
The people seem to get very close to the train. I preferred to stand back a bit.

You can just see the Shinkansen passing through this area right next to the building on the left.
A look out across the railway lines back towards Shinagawa Station and the Takanawa Prince Hotel.
Do you like to get out and take a walk, or are you more likely to be on the look out for the nearest taxi?
