Bureau Shinagawa


At BUREAU Shinagawa, our staff welcome clients from all over the world in a professional and friendly manner. Our service aims to make your stay in Japan as comfortable as possible—just like being at home—and to help guide your business to success.

Residents can spend time relaxing in the lobby, soak up some rays on the outside deck, have a business meeting on the top floor guest-only lounge, or even talk shop with world executives in the Japanese-style bath/sauna area.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. We look forward to meeting you and assisting your business in Japan.

I am part of a group that works on rotation in Tokyo. While short-term stays were acceptable, long-term stays at a traditional hotel were not what our group desired. After six months of searching, we were fortunate to connect with Space Design and BUREAU Shinagawa.

The BUREAU is just what we were looking for—a truly comfortable place to stay. We continue to receive great comments from within our group: The staff are very efficient, knowledgeable and friendly personnel who go out of their way to provide assistance and guidance to residents. The location is a quiet area on a canal with an outside patio and waterside walkways as far as Tennozu Isle station. The facilities include a top (24th) floor dining room with great meals at a very reasonable cost, an exercise room and a hot bath. The lobby offers comfortable seating areas and a coffee shop with complimentary breakfast. Then there are the conveniences, including a plaza across the street with a 24-hour grocery store, beauty salons, vegetable market, liquor store, dry cleaners, restaurants, medical office and pharmacy. Within a 10-minute walk are Shinagawa station, Tennozu Isle station and what seems like hundreds of restaurants and shops.

Now that we are here, none of us would consider moving. BUREAU Shinagawa has become our home away from home!

B-SITE Hamamatsucho


It is our great pleasure to serve people from all over the world. I hope you will feel relaxed and at home in our serviced apartments. In order to make your stay more comfortable, our team will offer fast and friendly service. For example, if you have any problems with the room facilities or electrical appliances, we will visit your room at the earliest convenience and solve them for you.


I remember that we had an Indian guest last year who loved origami. Before she went back to India, she really wanted to buy some as souvenirs. Although I introduced her to a few origami shops, it was difficult for her to visit them because of her schedule. So after I got home that day, I asked my sister, who was working as a kindergarten teacher, to make some origami figures for her. When I presented these to her before her check-out, she looked very happy and gave me some earrings in return.

One year has passed since then. She called me from Qatar recently and told me that she still has the origami as a reminder of the Japanese spirit of hospitality, omotenashi.

See you soon at B-SITE Hamamatsucho!

Located in the heart of Tokyo, tenants will have quick access to all parts of the city.

Why did you choose Burex Kojimachi?

It may sound strange, but the restrooms were a very big reason for our choosing these premises. While not as big, they are very close in terms of atmosphere and quality to those at the ANA Marriot hotel in Tameike—meaning that BUREX is punching well above its weight. Most pencil buildings have very depressing restrooms, and we felt that BUREX’s were good for employee morale. By the way, our clients are impressed too.

What were some pleasant surprises for you?

The receptionists are not only charming and attractive, but very good at their jobs, so our business benefited from impressed visitors.

John Takashi Ito

“If you’re starting up in Tokyo and you want to create a good impression but not pay an arm and a leg, I strongly recommend serviced offices by Space Design. I have seen many serviced offices in Japan, but by far one of the best looking and most convenient would have to be Space Design’s BUREX building.”

Shahani Associates Ltd. was founded in Japan in 2005, along with The Insurance Group, with a vision of assessing, recruiting and training top-level human capital for our clients. As our businesses have expanded, we needed an optimal location and a dynamic setting to grow.

BUREAU Toranomon has provided a solution for our needs: it is convenient and centrally located, has a spacious, modern first-floor lounge and meeting area, office space that is suitable for a small- to mid-sized business, friendly bilingual reception staff, and approachable building management.

A variety of dynamic businesses have found comfort and are excelling here at “The Bureau.”

My family and I have stayed at B:CONTE Ariake for more than two months. We are all satisfied with the friendly and warm-hearted concierge service, brand new facilities, well-equipped room and easy access to the nearest stations. We also like the neighboring area, which is quiet and cozy. This is a hotel that makes us feel at home.

Area Recommendations

by Ruth Shiraishi


A major station on the bullet train and Narita Express lines, Shinagawa is home to an array of restaurants and popular stores, such as Dean & Deluca and Queen’s Isetan supermarket. Space Design has four buildings in this area, offering beautiful views and spacious apartments. It’s a perfect spot for those who want access to Tokyo’s heart and soul as well as locations outside the metropolis.


Small cafes and pubs line the quiet streets of this neighborhood. A river cuts through the middle of this hilly area, making it a wonderful jogging locale. With easy access to Shinjuku, it’s a preferred residential neighborhood for people working on the Shinjuku/Ikebukuro side of Tokyo.


With a plethora of Japanese izakaya and a lively downtown feel, this is the Hollywood of Tokyo. The bustling energy of Ningyocho will put a spring in your step and make your stay in the city absolutely unforgettable.


Walk to the Imperial Palace grounds or join the early morning joggers doing laps around the moat. Ready to enjoy Sunday brunch at the Akasaka Prince Hotel, a leisurely drink at one of the many Irish Pubs, fantastic Indian food or excellent ramen? Hirakawacho is where you belong!
