Statue of Liberty and other Popular Attractions in Odaiba

Rainbow bridge (looks like the Golden Gate in San Francisco, California) and Statue of Liberty are some of the things that you shouldn’t miss when you are in Tokyo. The two popular landmarks can be found in Odaiba , a district in Tokyo located in a man-made island. Yup! Odaiba is a reclaimed area.  Aside from the two, here lies the popular gigantic Gundam Statue, National Museum of Emerging Science, Toyota Megaweb and Venus Fort, an outlet store which has the feel of Venice. Too many places that is worth an Instagram post can be found in Odaiba.
