DiverCity Tokyo Plaza, Odaiba and Shibuya

DiverCity Tokyo Plaza is at the heart of one of Japan's leading sightseeing spots - Perfect for tourists! It is a five minute walk from Daiba Station on the New Transit Yurikamome Line. We went there on our Day 7 in Tokyo.


This life-size Gundam statue is a symbol of DiverCity Tokyo Plaza. At different times of day, the head of the statue moves and shoot steam. We were there very early in the morning. Because of not many visitors, we took many silly photos in front of the Gundam statue.


We tried a small cup of deep fried fun fries at Calbee satellite shop. It is tasty and worth trying.


I took a picture with the sexy Marilyn Monroe at the entrance of Madame Tussauds Tokyo at the Decks Tokyo Beach mall in Odaiba. 


We felt like in New York, when we saw a replica of America's famous statue, Statue of Liberty in Odaiba. It is a great place for some fantastic photos for your travel album if the weather is good like when we were there.


After leaving Odaiba, we went to have raw milk ice cream in tall spindles, in small cone cups at Shiroichi, Shibuya. This dinky ice cream parlour serves soft, almost sorbet-like concoctions are a treat to savour.


April and May were busy playing when they were at DisneyLand and DisneySea. Luckily, there is Disney Store in Shibuya, where April and May purchased some Disney merchandise as their souvenir in Japan.


That evening, our secondary classmates whom have been working in Japan for more than 20 years, were back from Malaysia and treated us to a very good Japanese style steamboat, Shabu-shabu. We had a good catch up and we truly enjoyed the dinner so much.

  3. We did not go to Madame Tussaud's in Tokyo. We only went to Disneyland. Actually right, we have never been to any Madame Tussaud's anywhere! :(
