Colors of Tokyo /// Day 11 - Giant Gundam in Odaiba, Tokyo
Odaiba is a man-made island of shopping, luxury hotels, and entertainment, built in the middle of Tokyo Bay. Outside of the newly built shopping structure Divercity, is the nerd tourist magnet, the giant Gundam robot.
Helee and her husband drove me to this shopping island for the sole purpose of seeing this giant waving robot. we passed Tokyo Tower and Fuji Television before crossing over Tokyo Bay, by way of the rainbow bridge. The allure of Odaiba's shopping opportunities brought many Tokyoites and tourists a like. After waiting in stagnant traffic for an hour, we hadn't moved a centimeter, Helee and I exited the car while her husband braved the traffic by himself.
