Odaiba Tips (58)

Tokyo Bay Area

22 Tokyo Bay Area

Odaiba is a reclaimed land area where shopping and entertainment and exhibition facilities are developed recently.

The rainbow bridge, Fuji TV Headquarters, Palette Town, Aqua City are some of the highlights of this area. We were amazed by the beach, the statue of Liberty and the beautiful sunset.

Palette Town is a big shopping mall with boutiques, restaurants and you can find a giant ferris wheel.

Fuji TV Headquarter has an interesting building with a globe shaped observatory.

The rainbow bridge is a suspended bridge which connect Odaiba and Shibaura. It is 918 meters long and there is a foot path where you can walk along to enjoy the beautiful view.

About 1/3 of the Aqua City's building is called Mediage. It has 13 multiiplex cinema screens.

They also have restaurants, including Sizzler on the 5th floor and Red Lobster on the 6... There is a great sake brewery Hanashibe on the 3rd floor.

For some of the best coffee in Tokyo sip at Segafredo Zanetti on the 3rd floor or take the king of coffee, Illy, at Caf?EGiGi also on the 3rd floor.

open daily, shops 11am-9pm,
restaurants 11am-11pm ,some close at 5am.

Venus Fort shopping center

The whole of Odaiba area is built on landfill, risen from the foam of the sea waves. I suppose that's why they have decided to use the name Venus Fort and build the insides of the mall to resemble old Italian town to match the name. But, for me, stumbling inside Italy in Tokyo felt rather unexpected and therefore funny, just like walking in the middle of a theatre stage setting. So, unfortunately, I failed to get the point of the decor at this shopping center. Anyway, here you can buy designer clothes, bags, jewelry and such like. Expensive stuff.

The Museum of Maritime Science is shaped like a full sized ocean liner. The tour director mention to us if you like looking at a Japanese historical model boats the museum is the place to visit. He also mentioned the information is in Japanese but there are some basics English descriptions.

We didn’t end up visiting the museum but if you are interested of visiting and would like to find more information or google the Museum of Maritime Science.

Visit Odaiba

Built on land reclaimed from Tokyo Bay, Odaiba is the newest, most modern section of Tokyo. It has many attractions including:

Fuji TV Building

There is a studio tour which also allows access into observation deck in 'The Ball.' It is a pretty good value at Y500.

Ferris Wheel

The world's (formerly) largest ferris wheel is here in an area called Palette Town. Each car holds 6 people and takes 16 minutes to go around. Cost is about Y1000 per person. When I went, we didn't have to share a car with any other people so it was a nice, romantic, ride.

Shopping Mall 'Decks'

Decks is an American-style shopping mall. There are many restaurants -- even a microbrewery -- and cafes if you're ready for a meal or a snack. There is also a Sega Joypolis Amusement Center for those that like video and electronic games. Nearby in Aqua City are more restaurants including some American chains (though I'd suggest holding off for something more traditional).

Venus Fort

Upscale shopping can be found at this theme shopping mall which is made to look like an 18th century Italian village. Boutiques, restaurants and cafes a-plenty.
Toyota City

Toyota has a huge, futuristic showroom here with many displays of past, current and future automotive related themes. Definitely worth a peek.


There is even a beach (in front of Decks) although, personally, I wouldn't dare take a dip in Tokyo Bay. Ugh. Still, it's a good place for people watching.

If you want to see all or most of this stuff, expect to do a lot of walking and spend the whole day.

Tokyo's waterfront amusement zone

The trip over is an experience as you cross over the Rainbow Bridge & get a glimpse of the buildings here. There are many entertainment places to see, my short stay here was in the Palette Town area.

Venus Fort is a shopping mall done in a Greco-Roman style, it has an artificial sky that changes colour throughout the day.

The ferris wheel is accessible through the Toyota City Showcase in the Mega Web complex. The 115m wheel offers great views of Tokyo's waterfront.

Rainbow Bridge, Statue of Liberty, Tokyo Tower

To get to Odaiba, you will have to take their monorail (very fast) along the Yurikamome Line. We didn't spend enough time here, only spent around 1 hour or so to do photo-taking. There are many places to be explored eg. The Palette Town, Hot Spring Theme Park. Do share with me if you had been there!

Odaiba man made island off tokyo bay

There is a lot to see and do in Odaiba. Its a man made island out near Tokyo bay. There is lots of shopping themed areas like little Hong Kong and Little Italy. Fuji TV is located there. You can ride a big Ferris wheel also there is an onsen too. You can spend an entire day just walking around here shopping and eating.

The best station to get off at is Tokyo Tele port. From Shinjuku station take the Saikyo Line and then transfer at Osaki station to the Rinkai Line and get off at Tokyo Teleport.

If you are into cars, sports, and other products of the giant Japanese company TOYOTA, don't miss visiting its unique showroom at Odaiba.

Toyota's popular products, both old and new, plus their concept cars and other useful gadgets/appliances, etc, are all showcased in superbly creative manner at Odaiba. Just follow the signs and you will find it as it is humongous!

Keep your eyes peeled also for racing cars and other modern technological wonders the Japanese are noted fo at the motor sports square just adjacent to the Toyota showroom!

Statue of Liberty

This statue is in the Odaiba area. It was donated by the city of Paris which is Tokyo's sister city. In the background, you can see the Rainbow Bridge crossing the Tokyo Bay and, still further back in the fog, the silhouette of Tokyo Tower, which is a copy of the Eiffel tower in Paris just a little bit higher.

Scenery to the Tokyo Bay

At the Fuji TV-companys's building in Odaiba, there's a free viewing terrace from which you can see the Rainbow Bridge and Tokyo Bay. The building itself is as strange looking as all modern Japanese architecture.

Oedo Onsen Monogatari

I arrived there at 9pm and after registering and changing, it was about 10pm and the Foot Spa where i can meet the fish doctor was closed!!! and they will only open at 11am the next morning and i have to pay for the admission again. I beg them to let me get in for 1 minute just to experience the fish doctor, but they rejected me :(

I paid 1987 to get in there (after 6pm), and another 1578 yen to stay one night there. The Hotspring experience is awesome! First time i get to see so many naked women walking around! hehehe... I felt so clean after the bath!

I stayed one night in the resting room - there are about 50 or more reclining sofas there, and you have your own tv. is pretty cool! after 12pm, they will dim down the lights. Free SHampoo, toothbrush, comb, lotions! Great for Backpackers!
