my favourite spot by asihsimanis
my favourite spot, a photo by asihsimanis on Flickr.

Odaiba (or Daiba) is a popular shopping and entertainment district on a man made island in Tokyo Bay. It originated as a set of small man made fort islands (daiba literally means "fort"), which were built towards the end of the Edo Period (1603-1868) to protect Tokyo against possible attacks from the sea.

More than a century later, the small islands were joined into larger islands by massive landfills, and Tokyo began a spectacular development project aimed to turn the islands into a futuristic residential and business district .Odaiba developed into one of Tokyo's most popular tourist attractions and date spots with a wide selection of shopping, dining and leisure options. 

THe scenic of the place is incredible, you can see from the picture I took, where else in the world can you have the statue of liberty (a smaller version of the one in New York, but was also given by the French government as a sign of friendship), the rainbow bridge, AND the tokyo tower all in one frame? If that is not a dream scene, I dont know what is.

Odaiba, with Zojoji-temple (look at a picture I took of Zojoji-temple here), and the Shibuya crossroad for me are the best scenic spots in Tokyo, Everything else in Tokyo is more of a bunch of little amazing things you have to experience. Odaiba is something to complete your eye. Not to mention that the Mall near the Liberty has a small Indonesian Restaurant. 

For those people who love photography, and are in to scenic things, than this place is a must see.
