New station on the Yamanote Line

Takanawa Gateway is the 30th station of the JR Yamanote Line. Designed by the famous Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, its construction began in February 2017. It was inaugurated on March 14, 2020, for the Tokyo Summer Olympics but will not be fully operational until 2024.

Takanawa Gateway is placed between Shinagawa Station and Tamachi Station on the Yamanote Line, which loops around Tokyo. It is also close to Haneda International Airport, promising to be an important station not only for the Tokyo Olympics but also in the future.

It is also served by the Keihin-Tohoku line which extends from Saitama prefecture to the city of Yokohama, passing through Tokyo.

Previously, the Takanawa district was only served by the Sengakuji subway station, named after the nearby Sengaku-ji temple, a temple of the Soto Zen sect.

It is a place of a legend because the cemetery of the temple shelters the tombs of the 47 samurai who became ronin (masterless) following the death of their master, also buried in Sengaku-ji, the samurai Asano, who was condemned in 1701 to commit suicide according to the Seppuku ritual.
