    If the weather's nice, maybe you should go to the beach.

    See my Tokyo Bay travelogue for more photos.

    This is a really nice spot to come and just sit when the sun is shining. Although the beach is artificial, it's still a beach. Bring a beach towel to sit on, and a good book, or just come to people watch. Nearby, there's plenty of shopping and other entertainment facilities, so you can easily spend an entire day here.

    Go on a Harbour cruise. It is quite relaxing and is an easy way to see much of tokyo. You can get off at this new district (sorry can't remember name). The Fuji TV station and the whole place is very futuristic. There are game centres and many things to see here. It even has a beach.

    Odaiba ('Rainbow Town') sits as an island in Tokyo Bay.
    It's a man-made, futuristic location, with plenty to see and do. I visited only one evening, and limited myself to the MegaWeb FunFair - a small amusement park-type area, and the Toyota City Showcase (the world's largest auto showroom).
    I wish I'd returned the following day, for the place is full of great photo opportunities, and can take a day to wander around.
    The photo shows one building from the elevated railway, the Tokyo Big Site/Sight (the International Exhibition Hall). Kinda looks like something on the Klingon Home World, doesn't it???
    ...and yes, that's a giant wooden carpenter's saw handle on the left side of the picture...
    There's a car museum, amusement centre, a brewery, restaurants, ferris wheel, hotels, maritime museum, etc...

    My guide book suggested (and I heartily agree) to try & time the trip over the bridge to the sunset.

    Here at the MegaWeb Show room in the Odaiba part of town, you can see Toyota's latest technological achievements and there's also a museum of their old car models.

    Odaiba - Rainbow Bridge

    Rainbow Bridge

    This is one of the famous landmarks of Tokyo. A beautiful view can be taken in Odaiba. Many Japanese doramas have taken scenes from this location, eg. Love Generation.

    This is Odaiba, NOT New York!

    Japanese seemed so fond of American culture that they built a imitated statue of Liberty beside the Rainbow bridge ???

    Toyota Megaweb

    This is a carlover's delight. It showcases many of Toyota cars under one roof! You can also try motion simulators or even test try their cars.

    Impressive bridge across to Odaiba, cross it by the Yurikamome monorail if you're lazy like us, but walking is possible too. Great views, even by train as you cross!

    Shop in the centre with an ever changing sky scene!
    the ceiling has a projected image of the sky and within hours the bright blue sky changes to a glowing red sunset! It's very cool!
