Shinagawa is served by the following lines:
The main JR station concourse is situated above the platforms running east-west across the breadth of the station. A freely traversable walkway divides the station into two sections. The southerly section contains a number of shops and market-style stalls which form the "e-cute" station complex.
The Keikyu platforms are on the western side of the station at a higher level than the JR platforms. Some Keikyu trains terminate at Shinagawa while others continue on to join the Toei Asakusa Line at Sengakuji.
The Shinkansen platforms were opened on October 1, 2003, to relieve congestion at Tokyo Station. Platforms are on the east side of the station.

Shinagawa is one of Japan's oldest stations, opened on June 12, 1872 when the service between Shinagawa and Yokohama provisionally started, four months before the inauguration of "Japan's first railway" between Shimbashi and Yokohama through Shinagawa on October 14, 1872. This line is a part of the Tōkaidō Main Line. Nothing remains of the original structure.
Later on March 1, 1885, the Yamanote Line started operation. Takanawa station of the Keikyu Line (then Keihin Railway Line) opened on March 11, 1924 across the street from Shinagawa station. Takanawa station was renamed Shinagawa station and moved to the current site on April 1, 1933.
The station concourse on the eastern side of the station (located above the platforms) was extensively redeveloped in 2003 in connection with the construction of the Shinkansen platforms and also to improve access to the new commercial development "Shinagawa Intercity".
In fiscal 2011, the JR East station was used by an average of 323,893 passengers daily (boarding passengers only), making it the sixth busiest station operated by JR East.
The passenger figures for previous years are as shown below.
