"Odaiba the modern city" Odaiba Tip by fachd

Odaiba, Tokyo: 58 reviews and 95 photos

The meaning of Odaiba comes from a series of six islands fortress. It was constructed in 1853 by the Tokugawa Shogunate for the city's protection against attacks from the sea. Commodore Matthew Perry's Black Ships were the primary threat which had arrived in the same year.

Odaiba is a modern city on artificial islands in Tokyo Bay. It became one of the most interesting tourist destinations in Tokyo. It’s a popular shopping centre and entertainment district. The buildings at Odaiba city have futuristic architecture like the Fuji TV building, Telecom Centre. There are museums, theme parks to visits, public parks to relax or just take photos of Statue of Liberty or Rainbow Bridge or both. Even go and visit the largest Ferries Wheels in the world. If you hungry there are many restaurants to eat from or just spent your money and go shopping at Aqua City (Kim did). We only saw small glimpse of Odaiba city big picture, believe me the area is huge.
