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.
Cross-platform interchange between the Yamanote and Keihin-Tōhoku lines is only available from the next station, Tamachi.
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.

Famous quotes containing the word station:
“When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of natures God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”
—Thomas Jefferson (17431826)
