Odaiba

Odaiba

Odaiba is a large man made island in Tokyo Bay; originally constructed during the Edo period as a fortress, the once derelict site has been under redevelopment since the mid 1980s.

Today the area is Tokyo’s playground where locals go to walk a hired dog for an hour or get married at Daiba love village. Tourists, on the other hand, can spend days at the many attractions and restaurants that make up the area.

Odaiba is home to a few shopping centres, like Decks with its Little Hong Kong theme floor, and the 17th century European inspired Venus Fort.
