city of the future おだいば

Odaiba is a popular shopping and entertainment district on a man made island in Tokyo Bay.
 
 LEMONeD by hIDE, the most awesome guitarist ever. May he R.I.P
 
hIDE’s original guitars on display.
 
Leisure Land. This huge entertainment complex features a large game arcade, bowling alleys, slots, batting cages, karaoke, darts, table tennis and sports games.
 
There is also a ninja illusion house, a haunted house and food court – all in one.
 
お台場
 
Rainbow bridge
 
A shopping mall featuring various stores, restaurants and multiple indoor theme parks. There is a Trick Art Museum here too.
 
This is here, is inside one of the theme parks. Sega Joypolis.
 
Initial D4 Live. Where you race against other players while riding in car simulators, with announcers, commenting on the ongoing race.
 
Sonic 3D – The ride
 
Feels like you’re inside a huge pinball machine
 
Two screens, both front and back are in 3D with your cart in between, moving you back and forth, also rotating you 180degrees sharply everytime there’s an incoming attack from either side.
 
All these coupled with smoke, air jets, water sprays make the experience “4D”
 
The Rainbow Bridge connects Odaiba to the rest of Tokyo. The two story bridge is an iconic symbol of the bay and is especially beautiful during its nightly illumination.
 
The bridge supports an expressway, a regular road, the Yurikamome line and pedestrian walkways along both sides.
 
Find Nemo.
 
 
 
This 115 meter tall ferris wheel is one of the world’s largest and offers nice views of Tokyo Bay and Odaiba below.
 
This is Venus Fort. An elaborately Venice themed mall, complete with marble fountains,artificial sunsets every 30 minutes and an Italian “mayor” reading out speeches from a balcony.
 
Most shops are geared toward women.
 
It feel like you’re on a street, in another country; in a different timeline, in another era.
 
You’ve really gotta be there to really experience it. Pictures just don’t do it justice.
 
Mini Melts!
 
Giant Spider in…

Midtown

Roppongi hills.

   Great views of Tokyo cityscape.

Beautiful Tokyo skyline.

  Crepe Van!

Stopped by to take a look at some magazines.

 You lose all track of time, here. (In a good way,of course)
