Umi-Shibaura Station (海芝浦駅) is one of the last stations on the Tsurumi Line that connects Tsurumi and the Keihin Industrial Area.
It is located right next to the Keihin Canal, inside the Toshiba factory, and the station name is named after Toshiba’s predecessor, the Shibaura Factory.
Platform and sea are adjacent!
Umi-Shibaura Station is this scenery.
You can see the sea so close.
Since the platform and the sea are completely in contact with each other, this station is probably the station closest to the sea in Japan!
Can’t get out of the ticket gate!
It’s not just that the sea is close to this station is interesting.
Actually, ordinary people cannot get off at this station!
Because this station is on the premises of Toshiba’s factory, basically only Toshiba employees and people concerned can get out of the station.
It is, so to speak, a station for this factory.
However, there are many ordinary customers who come to this rare station and scenery.
At the end of the station, there is a small park called “Umishiba Park” that can be used by ordinary customers. You can sit on a bench and take a break while watching the sea.
