Reviews of Odaiba

Catherine Derieux Seasoned Traveller

An artificial island in Tokyo Bay, Odaiba is like a theme park with its Ferris wheel, beach, museums and shopping centres.

My suggestion:
To get to Odaiba, take the Yurikamome, Tokyo's automatic line, and move right to the front of the carriage to enjoy the view from Rainbow Bridge.
My review

The whole world meets at Odaiba! You can travel the Earth without leaving Tokyo. At Venus fort, I was teleported to Italy, with its marble fountains and decorations. And the Tokyo Decks shopping centre offers you a voyage to Hong Kong. I loved dressing up to take funny purikuras, those crazy Japanese photo booths.

It's also a pure delight to taste a bubble tea on the beach at Odaiba, even if it is not recommended to go into the water there. The Statue of Liberty watches over the sea front. Wait for the sun to set to see Rainbow Bridge and the boats in the bay light up. And to end the day, you must of course go for a ride on the Ferris wheel: That's Hello Kitty talking to you in the cabins!
