Odaiba is an artificial island, build in 1853, by the order of shogun Tokugawa Ieyoshi. It was one of the six fortresses constructed in ordre to protect the city from attack by sea, after Commodore Matthew Perry’s fleet upset the shogun.
Now, we can find hotels, work offices, shopping malls, a ferris wheel and a beach, where swimming is not recommended.
And especially, there is a beautiful view of Tokyo
Why going to Odaibe ? We wanted to go to National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation, thr Miraikan, but it’s closed every tuesday…
