Bayside strolling, water buses and great dining

Shibaura is an area of redeveloped land on the edge of Tokyo Bay, with canals snaking their way between high-rise residential apartments, warehouses and offices. There are plenty of drinking and dining options in the area as well.

This is an area of contrasts, with the gleaming modern buildings of nearby Shiodome and the Rainbow Bridge offset by centuries-old Zojoji Temple and the serene gardens of Hamarikyu Gardens . Shibaura is a great place to stroll around on a bright and sunny day.
