    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.

    Harbour Cruise

    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..Human Made Island...

    by hebaemam Written May 18, 2012

    Well when I went their I kind of couldnt believe that this is an artificial island. take a river cruise till odaiba enjoy few hours of famous brands shopping and all kinds of restaurant, as well as some sandy beach activity for the kids or fairy wheel ride.
    I enjoyed the himiko boat that took us through sumida river to odaiba and the port line we used on our way back to the station. this port line have no conductor and goes through the rainbow bridge and between tokyos sky scrappers, nice experience i think.....

    Sega Joypolis

    by HispanicYob Written Nov 6, 2014

    It's hard to believe Joypolis has existed as far back as 1994 according to what I read. I had made this place a checkmark on my bucket list that I had to check off while in Tokyo! So, I brought my buddies out here to experience this amusement park.

    Joypolis has rides that are based off of Sega (the video game company) properties. Most notably, Sonic the Hedgehog! Everyon'e favorite speedy hedgehog pops up all over the place here, and you can buy some Sonic goods at the gift shop, which is the best place I think in Tokyo to get some Sonic souvenirs. The rides are great fun! There is Halfpipe Tokyo, which is like a rhythm game set upon a halfpipe that rocks you back and forth like you are on a harnessed skateboard! Veil in the Dark was a weird shooter type where you shoot zombies while you are on a track then get spun wildly around! There is also a video arcade and simulated rides as well if you are not one for riding the rides. I would hope you at least try one!

    A groovy time and if you are looking for a good theme park in Tokyo to visit, Joypolis is for you!

    A great amusement park! Outside Joypolis An incredibly awesome ride!!

    Museum of Maritime Science

    by Blatherwick Updated May 6, 2004

    I couldn't get enough of this museum. Six floors of interactive displays, great descriptions of the business of the maritime economy, and one of the few places that the Japanese military is acknowledged. Even the outside is cool as it resembles a ship.

    My only letdown was that there were no decent english books in the store. However, I strongly recommend to anybody with an interest in ships to go to this museum.

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

    This is Odaiba, NOT New York!

    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 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.

    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!

    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!
