Are you planning to visit Tokyo but have a limited amount of time? Try to visit Odaiba. Odaiba is a man-made island in Tokyo Bay which has a mixture of old and new tourist spots. There are a lot of attractions in this place, so here are just a few of my suggestions.
Located at the back of Diver City Tokyo Mall, you can see the 18-meter giant Gundam statue. Whether you prefer to go there in the morning or at night, the beauty of this magnificent statue will dazzle your eyes. Beside this giant robot, there is also a bus that sells Gundam figures and other Gundam stuff for fanatics.
Your Japan experience would not be complete without trying an onsen. Oedo Onsen Monogatari is one of the most popular onsens around Tokyo.
In this place, you can experience wearing a yukata, which is a photo opportunity for foreigners who want to post “kawaii” stuff on their facebook or Instagram account.
You don’t need to bring a towel, soap, shampoo or toothbrush as they have it there. Just a reminder for those with tattoos, sadly, they do not allow persons with an indelible mark.
Perfect for car lovers, the History Garage Car Museum is located in Venus Fort Mall, about 5 to 8 minutes away from Diver City Tokyo Mall.
Photo tip: Do not forget to take a snap in the famous DeLorean car, the one Marty McFly used from the movie Back to the Future.
Madame Tussauds is located at Decks Mall. It features wax figures of celebrities like Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie, Jackie Chan, David Beckham, President Barack Obama and other famous actors, actresses, sports players famous locally and abroad.
Most of the time, there are some tourists who miss this beautiful rainbow bridge, not knowing that it is only a few minutes walk away from the Gundam Robot. Aside from this bridge which turns into colorful rainbows at night, you can also see a replica of the Statue of Liberty. With the right camera angle you can take a selfie with Liberty and kid around with your friends telling them after Japan, you decided to go to New York.
