With our fourth dimension inwards Nihon chop-chop coming to an end, nosotros decided to accept i final chance to pass fourth dimension inwards amazing Tokyo. We headed to Odaiba for a brusk menage unit of measurement ‘staycation’ to accept inwards the beautiful views of Tokyo Bay, in addition to explore the area. The persuasion from our hotel room did non disappoint!
Not alone were nosotros conduct inwards front end of the iconic Rainbow Bridge, but nosotros also had a persuasion of Lady Liberty herself! (Japan has 3 Statue of Liberty replicas, but this i is the most famous.)
So, nosotros walked downwards for a closer look.
Now for a dainty walk along the bay.
We truly enjoyed the beautiful walking path.
The girls loved looking for crab alongside the rocks.
In the other direction, in that location was truly a sandy beach area. I had been to Odaiba a few times, but did non know this beach existed! The beachfront surface area was really lively on this beautiful Lord’s Day afternoon.
There was some kind of tournament happening, which was closer to ping pong, with paddles in addition to ball but using a volleyball-style cyberspace instead of a table. Interesting.
Tokyo dogs must live alongside the most spoiled animals inwards the world. They ever stimulate got cute haricuts,
VERY fashionable clothes,
in addition to are almost ever seen riding inwards strollers.
In fact, it is to a greater extent than mutual to run into a domestic dog riding inwards a stroller than walking!
I’ve seen in addition to hence many clothed dogs, that it’s normal to me now.
And don’t forget the fancy domestic dog deli’s where you lot tin purchase your precious doggy a gourmet repast or treat!
If you’re non a domestic dog person, you lot could ever consider a prairie domestic dog on a leash, or FIVE! (Their possessor was feeding each i H2O using a really small-scale syringe. That’s love!)
Back to the room for a quick alter in addition to some puddle time!
And an awesome persuasion of the sunset.
The hotel hot tub was amazing! I absolutely loved sitting inwards this spot gazing at the Tokyo Bay. I tried to truly etch this minute into my retention to recollect at a after fourth dimension in addition to place. And, nosotros had it all to ourselves!
Ella is my adventurous eater in addition to ever chooses traditional local cuisine from the breakfast buffet. The first, was soup with quail eggs in addition to lotus flower, the 2d bowl was grilled mackerel on rice. As for me? I headed straight for the omelette station.
And such a lovely outdoor patio to bask a loving cup of java in addition to the paper.
After breakfast, nosotros wandered the area. Meet Gundam, a famous Tokyo landmark.
And the Venus Fort mall, had a classic automobile display.
Honestly, what tin live to a greater extent than classic than the Delorean?
I had such deja vu inwards this mall. It looked exactly like the Caesar’s Palace Forum Shops inwards Las Vegas. I had to proceed reminding myself where nosotros were.
Maybe non the best design for an umbrella?
I was in addition to hence happy to run into that parents were also allowed inwards the babe room! Whew!
After the mall, nosotros happened upon a huge Toyota showroom with a bunch of fun driving simulations.
Such a fun surprise, in addition to free!
Odaiba is built on reclaimed province in addition to has a really good planned layout. The pedestrian traffic is all on higher upwardly street walkways, in addition to hence you lot don’t truly bargain with vehicle traffic at all. It was nice.
More puddle fourth dimension inwards the afternoon, followed past times some other walk along the bay inwards the evening.
I truly loved the pots of succulents closed to the hotel grounds. I don’t know how these desert plants hold upwardly the Nihon rainy season, but they certain were beautiful in addition to reminded me of home.
Lots to a greater extent than crab to hunt in addition to critters to find.
It was such a perfect eve too, with only the correct total of body of body of water breeze.
This staycation had such a beach resort feel, fifty-fifty correct inwards the see of the city.
Sometimes I forget that nosotros truly DO alive on an island!
This could live the most picturesque marriage shoot ever. Lucky!
There’s nix similar existence barefoot inwards the sand. The perfect agency to halt a really relaxing day.
We spent the final hateful solar daytime of our brusk staycation at the DisneySea Resort. The subject is dissimilar H2O front end areas closed to the world, you lot tin read to a greater extent than nigh it here.
My sis lives nigh Venice, so, Pam, is this close?
We truly dear DisneySea in addition to wanted to see i final fourth dimension earlier nosotros move. Ariel’s castle is a favorite destination.
We stood inwards describe of piece of employment for the “Journey to the Center of the Earth” ride, made it to the front end of the line, in addition to were truly seated inwards the ride, when they announced that in that location were technical difficulties, in addition to the ride would live closing for maintenance. So, nosotros got off of the ride in addition to were asked to hold off longer.
After nigh 10 to a greater extent than minutes, nosotros were escorted out of the ride, via a individual backroom, in addition to given a quondam VIP transcend to ride whatever other ride of our selection without waiting. That experience was definitely a first!
The Japanese are really expert at waiting inwards lines in addition to volition start waiting earlier a present or parade for an lx minutes or more!
Influenza A virus subtype H5N1 cool process on a hot day!
I loved this shot for the Tower of Terror ride. Hearing the storey inwards Japanese does non add together the grade of scary that the California Disneyland version does, but it is withal a bang-up ride.
The commons was celebrating xv years this year, in addition to hence in that location were many elaborate decorations. Gotta dear Disney!
And with that, our fabulous menage unit of measurement staycation came to an end.
Only i calendar week until nosotros operate out Japan. I tin hardly behave the thought!
