Ari and Nici in Japan: Odaiba

Hey guys (^.^)v

Welcome back to another post about Japan ♥
On our last day in Tokyo we visited Odaiba.

The train ride to Odaiba was one of the most cool I ever did x3
You don't ride a usual subway, but an overhead railway.
The train drives behind the glass walls which alone is yet very cool..

But the landscape during the ride even more amazing *-*
You drive along between skysrapers...

 And the route also leads over the famous Rainbow Bridge ♥ 

As you can already see, it was very cloudy that day..

Odaiba even has a beach ^-^
Rainbow Bridge in the background ^.^

For a while, we just sat at the beach and watched some stand-up paddlers.
But later, we decided to have a stroll to Tokyo Leisure Land!
(also because it started to rain...)

a bridge to cross the street to Leisure Land
it says "teleport bridge".... o.O ?

Leisure Land's characteristic feature is the huge ferris wheel:

It is even illuminated in the dark *-*
But we decided not to stay that long because we wanted 
to go to Shibuya one last time ^.^

it has colourful gondolas *-*
We did not take a ride with it, since I am a bit afraid
of heights and it was also really expensive.
The colourful gondolas were about 1,000 and the
transparent ones even 2,000 per person I think..

It then started to rain, so we spent some time in Tokyo Leisureland,
playing air hockey and Ufo-Catchers ^.^
But again, we didn't win anything x'D
But, I made a new friend ^.^

We had a lot of fun there ^.^
On our way back to the train station, we went by a shopping centre
and since it started to rain again, we went in.
It turned out to look rather strange on the inside:

The ceiling was painted like the sky and all the shops had a Venice-like looking front..
But the only interesting shops for us were a Lego store and daiso x3
But, since we were hungry, we also went to Lotteria in the centre ^.^

I had Melon Soda again ♥ but the fries weren't that good..

When we wanted to leave, some guys with a big video camera spoke to us.

They said they made promotion for the Olympic Games 2020 in Tokyo
and asked us to write a massage on a board they gave to us xD
Then they took a photo and wanted to post it on their official facebook page.
Our photos did not show up their until now, but they also took a photo with
Nici's camera. So I still have a pic to show you here ^.^

After this experience, we went to Shibuya again.
It was the last day in Tokyo for us since the next day we went off to Osaka.
I already wrote about our adventures in Shibuya here,
so let's continue with what happened when we came back to our host family's location.

When we left the train station, we suddenly heared some kind of music from nearby
and went to where we thought the noise was coming from...

There was a small festival nearby ^.^
I took a short video of the people dancing:


So, that's all about our last day in Tokyo.
The next day, we took the Shinkansen to Osaka ^.^
More about Osaka and other nearby locations we visited will follow.
And last but not least, my suitcase before we left x'D

looks like exploded but in the end everything fitted in x'D
Thank you for reading ♥
See you next time (^.^)v
