Aomono Yokocho Station is located in the eastern area of ​​Shinagawa Ward, Tokyo. Aomono Yokocho Shopping Street is a wide-area shopping street centered on the intersection of the Old Tokaido Road and Geneva Heiwa Street, with over 100 stores lined up.

It is a city that blends old and new, with many cultural heritage sites that give you a sense of history, and the adjacent bay area lined with high-rise condominiums and office buildings. It is affectionately known as “Aoyoko” by the local people.

The Keihin Electric Railway, which opened in 1902, was a single-car train, with its first train at Yatsuyama (now Kita-Shinagawa), followed by Kitababa and Minami-Baba stations, and Aomono Yokocho.
There has been a vegetable market in this area since the Edo period, with large greengrocers lining the streets and a huge crowd. In the past, Shinagawa, Oi, Omori, and Kamata were villages and towns that prospered by being half-farming and half-fishing, but farmers harvested the vegetables harvested in these areas by themselves using large wagons, oxcarts, and horse-drawn carriages. They brought it to Aomono Alley and traded it.
It seems that they were carried from as far away as Magome and Senzoku. Aomono Yokocho is not a place name, but a colloquial name that retains the remnants of the local vegetable market, and along the Keikyu Line there was a similar station name called “Gakkou Ura” (Heiwajima). The area around today’s Yashio High School is thick with reeds, and the area around Tokai Junior High School used to be the sea at the time.
