Things to Do in Tokyo

Locally known as simply “Daiba”, this is an artificial island situated in Tokyo Bay and dedicated to ultramodern design and upscale leisure activities. A sort of exhibition park on steroids! It boasts classic accoutrements like a ferris wheel and a beach at Seaside Park, but otherwise, this high-end technological entertainment centre is full-blast contemporary.
Neither is it inexpensive! It’s easy to access via the Rainbow Bridge (not the same one, obviously, that westerners say their pets have crossed when they pass on) or the futuristic public transit train. The view of Mount Fuji is fabulous from here!
Daiba has all the usual amusement park attractions, as well as unique shopping and a litany of the coolest sushi bars. Video games, cosplay, high-tech everything right at your fingertips. It makes for a super-fun day near the water, and you can even have a chat with a robot; just don’t challenge him/her/it to a game of chess!
