Odaiba is one of the strangest neighborhoods in Tokyo—although if you consider most of it was underwater 100 years ago, it’s actually quite remarkable.

Odaiba is linked to Shimbashi in central Tokyo via the Yurikamome Line which travels across the landmark Rainbow Bridge before doing a loop around Odaiba and terminating in Toyosu. The trip across the Rainbow Bridge is fantastic cheapo value with amazing views of the central Tokyo sky line and the lower reaches of the Sumida River.

Odaiba itself is an eclectic collection of 80s era development projects with many of the buildings looking like stranded alien spaceships. It’s also home to Tokyo’s only urban beach (but no swimming allowed!), plus many attractions, entertainment centers, shopping venues and more.
