  • 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.

    大人になったらしたいこと『ホストファミリーになること』が叶いました♡ テキサス生まれのネブラスカ育ち、初めての海外で、日本、そして我々ファミリーのもとに来てくれたことに感謝です。 ひとりっ子の俺様息子がどうなるかと思ったけれど、言葉が通じないながら、一緒に遊んでもらって、まるでお兄ちゃんができたようで嬉しそうでした。 ちなみに『魔の二歳児』はアメリカでは『terrible 2』と言って、同じくお母さんたちは手を焼いているそうです。万国共通なんだなあ。 異言語異文化に対する心理的障壁をなくせる息子へのメリットに加え、私も子どもが一人増えたようで嬉しいので、これからもほそぼそと続けて行けたらなあと思います。 #homestayinjapan #hostfamily #2歳7ヶ月

    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.

    Ooedo Onsen Monogatari

    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.

    Rainbow Bridge & Statue of Liberty

    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.
