Nihonbashi: Point Zero 日本橋 道路元標

Nihonbashi was first built in 1603, when Tokugawa Ieyasu planned the construction of a network of 'expressways' to all over Japan. Today’s bridge is the 19th generation. In 1604, Ieyasu chose Nihonbashi as the starting point for Japan's five most important roads. And so, since then, point zero (0km, then 1km, 2km, etc.) has been situated here at Nihonbashi. read more

Strolling in Odaiba 東京 お台場散歩

For the last 150 years, Tokyoites have been moved far from the shoreline, mainly because of the reclamation of land and (more recently) the construction of Haneda Airport and port facilities. Tokyo citizens were, in a way, forced to stay far away from the water. We couldn’t smell the sea breeze, and we couldn’t play in and around the bay easily.
All of that is changing. In 2001, the National government, the Tokyo City government (and Yokohama, Chiba, and others) along with Minato Ward, decided to launch an urban revitalization project, including “the regeneration of Tokyo Bay.” Targets include improving the quality of the water, protection of sea creatures, and regaining our enjoyable marine life. Happily, Odaiba Kaihinkoen (Odaiba Marine Park) is one of the highest priority spots for the project.read more


Spherical Observatory “Hachitama” 球体展望室・はちたま

The head office building of Fuji TV was built in 1996, much before Odaiba became the popular hot spot it is today. The building's world famous designer, Kenzo Tange (1913-2005), was responsible for creating this unique building. At the outset, the combination of a spherical body and solid square building was quite new, and he envisioned that it would become THE symbol of the newly developed Odaiba. His prediction has came true! read more


Odaiba Traditional Colors & Patterns お台場の駅で見る日本の伝統文様

The Yurikamome Line is an automated guideway transit service connecting central Tokyo (Shimbashi) and the Tokyo Bay waterfront (Odaiba, Ariake, and Toyosu). About 30,000 people use this train line daily, accessing Odaiba's cool sightseeing spots. For the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, it will be the main transport to the stadium from central Tokyo.
By the way, we can see these unique station icons at each stop along the line. read more
