Odaiba Waterfront Sunset

Silhouette of Tokyo

By Tomoko Kamishima    - 2 min read

Tokyo is not just a concrete jungle. A blue sky, glittering sunlight, and a gentle sea are here in the heart of Tokyo. The shoreline of Odaiba is one of the best sunset spots in the Tokyo metropolitan area. This seaside town has been developed at a very high pace since 1995. Especially around Daiba Station on the Yurikamome Line, there are many fun and interesting facilities such as the spherical observatory “Hachitama,” Diver City Tokyo, Aqua City Odaiba, Hotel Nikko Tokyo, and others.

A well-maintained running course from "Fune-no-kagakukan" to "Odaiba Kaihinkoen" is good for a comfortable run or stroll. A madder red sunlight draws a beautiful Tokyo silhouette in a short time as the sun sets and an evening glow takes over.

There are many ways to access Odaiba: a 50-minute water bus tour on the Sumida River (from Asakusa to Odaiba Kaihinkoen), a 13-minute-ride on the Yurikamome Line from Shimbashi, or a 20-minute bus ride from Shinagawa and Tamachi (Odaiba Rainbow Bus).

Japan is a small island nation, but we have a huge number of surprising things to discover here. Many of these delights can be found when you step off the main street onto small side paths. I really enjoy studying about and researching various aspects of traditional Japanese culture, and then sharing this information with visitors to Japan. I hope you will enjoy it, too! ARTICLE INDEX & PHOTOS:  An index of most of my Japan Travel articles can be found at the entry page of my blog, and my photos are shown here.  日本はとても小さな国ですが、大通りから一本小道に入ればたくさんの発見があります。日本人が積み重ねてきた歴史を学びながら、古い建物や庭を訪ね、物語の舞台となった景色を眺めて、皆様といっしょに日本文化の奥深さを探求していきたいと思います。
