Toyosu Station is located in the Toyosu neighborhood of Koto Ward in southeastern Tokyo. It is served by the Tokyo Metro Yurakucho Line and the New Transit Yurikamome Line. The Tokyo Metro subway station is located underground, and the Yurikamome Line train station is above ground level. The train station is the eastern terminus of Yurikamome Line.


Toyosu is located in the southeastern part of Tokyo on an artificial island along Tokyo Bay. This island was formed from the accumulated debris of the Great Kanto earthquake of 1923. Toyosu was a comparatively less developed area until the Yurakucho Line was built in 1988, after which it has seen rapid development. It is now a popular residential area with many modern apartment complexes – both middle class and upper class luxurious ones - coming up in Toyosu. Recently many commercial complexes and business offices have also made Toyosu their home. The most well-known and popular commercial complex here is the Urban Dock Lalaport Toyosu.


Urban Dock Lalaport Toyosu


Urban Dock Lalaport Toyosu is a large modern shopping and entertainment complex located a short walk from Toyosu Station. Opened as recently as the spring of 2006, it is situated on what was once a flourishing shipyard. Parts of the shipyard have been retained in the design of the complex. There are over 200 shops, restaurants, and service facilities in this sprawling complex, besides a large supermarket, a cinema, a museum, a sports gym, and a children's entertainment center.


Located in the atrium facing the main entrance of Lalaport is a 19 th century pipe organ. This pipe organ is said to have been built by Bishop and Son in England over a hundred years ago. The shops at Urban Dock Lalaport Toyosu include such names as Gap, J. Crew, LL Bean, Uniqlo, and Japanese names like Tokyu Hands and Kinokuniya Bookstore. The restaurants and bars all overlook Tokyo Bay and offer magnificent views of Rainbow Bridge and the Tokyo Skyline. The Cinema complex has 12 screens and 1,777 seats. There is also a beautiful garden within the complex. This garden, which was designed by Belgian flower artist Daniel Ost, is a soothing and sensitive fusion of the Japanese and western styles.


The museum at Lalaport Ukiyo-e Museum – is a permanent exhibition of Ukiyo-e woodblock prints. All the beautiful pieces of prints are from the world renowned Hiraki Collection. The museum also hosts workshops for Ukiyo-e students and connoisseurs.


Urban Dock Lalaport Toyosu's pride is Kidzania , Japan's first theme park for children where they can pretend to be adults and enjoy at the same time. The idea behind this unique park is to allow children to try out different careers. Upon entering this small city, one comes across a street with little cars and miniature buildings. Each of these “buildings” is either a bank, a hospital, a radio station, a newspaper office, a fire station, or a beauty salon. Children have about 80 professional careers to choose from. They can put on a uniform and learn how to work in a particular field. They are even paid for their work in Kidzo money which can be spent in Kidzania itself. Kidzania is a “children only” zone – meaning only children from 2-12 years old are allowed to enter. Parents can only watch from outside through observation windows and monitors. The only adults inside are the instructors for each career who teach the children how to be what they want. This incredible theme park is extremely popular and is always crowded during weekends. On weekdays, Kidzania has groups of children from various schools on field trips.


Outside the Urban Dock Lalaport Toyosu buildings but within the complex is an open air food court with a performance stage.


Urban Dock Lalaport Toyosu was developed and built by Mitsui Fudosan Co. and is operated and managed by LaLaport Management Co.,Ltd.
