Dentsu Building's address is Higashi-Shinbashi, not Shinbashi, and most people would consider it as being in "Shiodome", rather than "Shinbashi", as that's the closest station and the building is part of the Shiodome development.
Yakitori place under Shimbashi railway (This is Izakaya "Ton ton" which serves yakitori but is not a "yakitori place" and is under the Yamanote line and Keihin-Tohoku line (among others) tracks (there is no "Shinbashi railway") and is, famously, in Yurakucho, not Shinbashi.)

Shinbashi (新橋, lit. "New Bridge", sometimes transliterated Shimbashi) is a district of Minato, Tokyo, Japan, located south of Ginza, west of Tsukiji, east of Toranomon and north of Hamamatsucho.

Etymology[edit]

Shinbashi means "new bridge" in Japanese.

History[edit]

The area was the site of a bridge built across the Shiodome River in 1604. The river was later filled in.[1] Shinbashi was the Tokyo terminus of the first railway in Japan in 1872. It remains a major railway hub and has since developed into a commercial center, most recently with the construction of the Shiodome "Shiosite" high-rise office complex.
