Meeting Room

Heidelberg Japan K.K.

3-31-8, Higashi - Shinagawa
Shinagawa-ku, Tokyo

Getting To Heidelberg Japan

Take the Keikyu Main line (NOT JR) from Shinagawa station to Aomonoyokocho station.

Leave the station using the north exit (where the train came from)

Turn right on the main road.

follow the road to the ricoh building second street crossing with a traffic light and turn left, staying on the left side.

If you are on a bridge over a large river, you went too far.

The Heidelberg Site is about 100 meters north, across from the fire station.

Note it is not quite as prominent and easy to find as in Heidelberg.

If you are not starting from Shinagawa station, it may be more convenient to get out at Shinagawa seaside station and head north from there. Shinagawa seaside is closer but you'd have to switch trains from Shinagawa station.

There is a large Prince hotel complex around Shinagawa Station that includes the following hotels:

  • Prince Shinagawa Hotel

  • Grand Prince New Takanawa

 (warning)  (warning) The event is close to cherry blossom time so hotels are filling quickly! (warning)  (warning)
