Top 6 Places to Visit in Odaiba

Odaiba is a man-made island across from the Tokyo Bay. Odaiba is a popular spot among couples and families. With many restaurants and shops, Odaiba is a fun place to spend time.

This time around, I would like to talk to the people who have been to Tokyo a few times and are looking for something new to try out. I’m sure by now you’ve read all about the sushi restaurants, the night clubs, the historical tourist attractions and the common this and that of Tokyo. I will now give you a list of shopping malls and attractions to enjoy around Odaiba.

 

#1. Odaiba Tokyo Oedo Onsen Monogatari

If you haven’t tried Japanese Onsen yet, that is to say the Japanese public bath, Odaiba Tokyo Oedo Onsen Monogatari is the place you want to go. Odaiba Tokyo Oedo Onsen Monogatari has three main points of interest. First, the public bath itself of course. That can be an adventure already if you haven’t tried them yet. Once you lie down in a hot bath at perfect temperature for relaxation, all your aches will fade away.

The second element is the outside garden with its open air bath. A lovely way to spend an afternoon. Finally, there is a food and games area that makes you feel like you are stepping into an old Japanese village. It is lit solely with lanterns and will make you feel like a time traveler. Odaiba Tokyo Oedo Onsen Monogatari is such a lovely place, I can’t recommend it enough. Two things to keep in mind though, no tattoos allowed and this has become a tourist attraction so don’t expect the lowest prices on food.

#2. DECKS Tokyo Beach

If you decide that your day must be filled with shopping, then Decks Tokyo Beach is where you want to head out for the day. With its large shopping mall and wide selection of restaurants, it is not only a fantastic place to shop but it’s also a great place for kids.

It has all the entertainment you’ll need to keep your children occupied for the day. It is very popular though and you should keep in mind that there will be a lot of visitors. If you do not have children, I would advise to go there at night to enjoy the views over the city and the illuminated architecture. The main point of interest is Rainbow Bridge.

#3. Rainbow Bridge

Rainbow Bridge

Talking about the Rainbow Bridge, this is absolutely a must-see when you find yourself nearby Tokyo Beach. It may seem unimpressive on photos but let me paint the picture for you. Think of the blanket of lights emerging from Tokyo city as a backdrop.

Rainbow Bridge

In between the city and the place where you stand, a red and white river of car lights moving slowly across the bridge and just over them, the bridge’s multicolored top with spot lights colored like a rainbow. It is worth checking out at least once.

#4. Diver City Tokyo Plaza

Diver City Tokyo Plaza

Another cool mall is the DiverCity Tokyo Plazza. The kid in me loves robots and the giant Gundam right at the entrance of the mall is what makes me go back every time.

The mall is quite good as Japanese malls usually are and it hosts a lot of big brands apparels shops and a lot and here, I really mean a lot, of nice eateries. Make sure to take the day for this visit because the place is really huge.

#5. Kaihin Koen

Kaihin Koen

If you need a break from all the shopping, then you’ll love to step out and hang in the flowers garden at Kaihin Koen. Not only is the entire park very extensive but it also offers stunning views over the city. You know it’s good when even the locals come to enjoy it.

Kaihin Koen

Between the colorful surroundings and the tracks going around the entire park, you will get plenty of opportunities to take splendid photos and relax before going back into the local malls. If you want to enjoy Kaihin Koen to the fullest, make sure to come out for sunset, it will be unforgettable.

#6. Tokyo Odaiba Palette Town

Tokyo Odaiba Palette Town

Palette Town is a gathering of 18th-century style shopping mall, a game and entertainment center and a giant Toyota showroom with an indoor testing track for driving licenses holders. The mall is somewhat enjoyable to linger in as it is fully decorated in an out of time fashion.

You can then ride the Ferris Wheel that will bring you at its 115 meters top where the view is breath taking and you can complete your visit with a bit of arcade and bowling fun in leisure land.
