The Rainbow Bridge looking back at Tokyo from Aqua City, Odaiba.
I went for a short walk on Christmas Day to Odaiba. It was pretty busy and I didn’t take the camera out much, but here are a few snaps I took along the way.
Venus Fort has changed itself into Tokyo's first outlet shopping mall. With the easy train access it should be a popular destination for shoppers.
Venus Fort looks busy today. Must be the sales at the new outlet stores that are attracting the crowds.
The rear view of the Fuji Television building. Almost became the LiveDoor Fuji TV building when Horie-san tried to buy the company a few years ago. What do you think of Internet companies trying to buy media outlets? The AOL / TimeWarner deal didn't seem to go so well. Do you think Google or Facebook could buy a large TV station? What might they gain by doing so?
Couples and families out taking in the view of Tokyo Bay and the Rainbow Bridge.
A boat makes its way peacefully through the water approaching the terminal at Odaiba.
Odaiba has its own mini Statue of Liberty. I think this was donated by France, after originally loaning Tokyo one of the originals. Can't remember the full story on this.
Two of the apartment buildings built back when Odaiba was set to be host a World Expo. A change of Tokyo local government canceled the Expo and the Odaiba area has slowly been trying to build up clientele ever since.
