Read literally, the characters in Shinbashi mean "new bridge".

History

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.
