We spent today wandering around the artificial island in Tokyo Bay called Odaiba. It was built as a tourist destination as well as an all-inclusive residential comunity. It has it’s own train line as well as a monorail, and it includes dozens of shopping areas for everything you could need, from groceries, to clothing, to hardware, as well as cafes and museums. It also includes a few more outlandish things including a Lego Land, Madame Tussaud’s, and various theme parks. One of the themed areas is a 1950s Tokyo shopping street complete with authentic shops, foods and other products. It also has many other retro accoutrement from the 60s, 70s, and 80s including video arcades, and period appropriate posters, comic book pages, and album covers adorning the walls.
