There are various ways to reach Shinagawa from Yokohama.
Here, we show one recommended simple way.Take a JR Negishi (Kehin-Tohoku) Line train from Sakuragicho station to Shinagawa station.
We hope you can reach Shinagawa station by using web search engines with above keywords "from Sakuragicho station to Shinagawa station ".
Characteristics of this recommended way are:
Sakuragicho station is second nearest station of IETF meeting venue. First nearest one is Minatomirai station. It is possible to come from Minatomirai station. However, we do not recommend to use Minatomirai station, because it requires complex transfer at Yokohama station and takes more costs to reach Shinagawa.
At JR Sakuragicho statin, there are two Lines. One is Negishi (Kehin-Tohoku) Line (blue line-printed train), the other is Yokohama Line (green line-printed train).
Please take a Negishi(Kehin-Tohoku) Line blue line-printed train bound for Yokohama/Tokyo/Ohmiya.
(There is a subway Sakuragicho station. It is different one. Please do not use subway.)
After you reach Shinagawa station, follow map information shown at our showroom web site (http://www.nec.com/en/global/niw/) or http://showroom.hp2.jp/way-to-showroom-with-pictures.pdf.
Since Shinagawa station is one of major stations in Tokyo, it is very easy to move from Shinagawa to both Narita and Haneda airports. There are many convenient transportation ways. (You can easily find them from web search engines.)
