Odaiba

29 Jun

We went to Odaiba, Tokyo today.

The train to Odaiba is fun because it’s driverless and it goes over “Rainbow Bridge”, but we went there by car today.

It had been awhile since our last visit to Odaiba. Kinda surprising how many more foreign tourists were there this time! I guess Tokyo tourist guidebooks feature Odaiba more prominently now.

Anyways, here are photo I took:

We ate たこ焼き (grilled octopus) for lunch.

I like 「台場一丁目商店街」 (Odaiba Retro Shopping Street), designed like post-WW2 Japan.

In the evening, the lifesize Gundam robot is lit-up and moves a bit.

    We’ve been to Odaiba a couple of times, just enough to know we want to go again and stay the night to make it a weekend adventure.🙂 Will likely do this in after the Summer heat dies down.

      Odaiba is nice, but I think one day is enough time to see it.
      There is an onsen there though…have you been to it?
