A visit over to Odaiba

Odaiba is quite the unique island in out in Tokyo Bay. Odaiba (a man-made island) is home to a lot of futuristic buildings, malls, food options, and of course TeamLab Borderless which is where we headed back in 2019. However, getting there is a bit of a journey.

Getting over to Odaiba is a bit of a pain because it takes forever and the only train that links to all of the stations across the island, the Yurikamome line, takes forever to reach Aomi Station (station closest to Teamlab Borderless), making for a half hour trip just to get to our final destination (at least from the Roppongi area). Even from the biggest wards like Shinjuku and Shibuya, Odaiba is just not that easy to get to. So if this a must see on your schedule, make sure you coordinate and time your trip properly so you have enough time to get over there during your trip.

However once you make to the island, it is quite beautiful and there is a ton to see across the island. The day we arrived, it was clear skies and slightly cool out (November in Japan is delightful), making it perfect to walk around and explore. We made our way to Teamlab Borderless which was the highlight of making the journey out to the island, so I will have a blog about that later on, but if you do make your way to Odaiba from Central Tokyo, be prepared for a long train ride, but it is worth it. There is a ton to see, ton to buy, and lots of food options. TeamLab is the top thing to see, but there is more to see. I mean, where else can you find a Gundam just hanging out?

I just wonder how it will all change moving forward as things continue to change around the world. Time will tell!
