Fiuh, hottt sweaty dayy.. -_-‘
Wanna post the continuation of the Asakusa posting 🙂
A bit introduction for Odaiba 🙂
Odaiba is the huge amusement zone where you can enjoy a-one-package of shopping : delicious food, entertainment and the view of Tokyo Bay! 😀
For girls, please come here.. You can shop in Ginza 1st, then have a visit to Odaiba, believe me, you won’t be disappointed. 😉
How to get there?
1) From Aomi station on Yurikamome line, 3 min walk from tokyo teleport station on Rinkai Line
2) From Yurikamome new transit monorail (runs between shimbashi-yamanote line and Ariake), the entrance to the Yurikamome monorail is close to Ginza exit of Shimbashi Station (Yamanote Line)
3) River commuter/sea bus, either between Hinoide and Odaiba , or between Asakusa and Odaiba.
Because the trip before was from Asakusa, I chose the 3rd option, the river commuter would be more excited than going by densha, at least that what’s I thought. The fee @1,220Yen. Almost doubled as if I took the densha from Asakusa st to Aomi st (690Yen), but I’d never regret, because it had its own attraction : the view while crossing the river was absolutely great!!
On the way to Odaiba, I admired so many wonderful buildings with unique architecture, oh what a real sense of art you have, Mr Architect! 😀 Arriving @Hinode Pier, we did the change(norikae) to the other ship and this ship’s a bit different with the 1st one while we only sat quite un-productively, this one much more nice, we could go to the deck. The access passed by the rainbow bridge.
It’s so windy at that day supporting with the setting of the beautiful dusk and amazing rainbow bridge, it made a completely “kimochi ii na..“, I really felt like flying without wings.. If only I’d the partner, maybe I’d be acting like Rose and Jack in the Titanic, haha..
Then we arrived @Odaiba Seaside Park after after 20mins of feeling “kimochi ii na..” on the cruise, the list was already written :
1) Nihon Kagaku Mirai Kan (National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation)
3) Little Hongkong
4) Fuji TV Headquarters
5) Pallete town
6) Statue of Liberty
7) Oedo Onsen Monogatari
Actually it could be a long long list & review of the must-go spots. 😀
We wished to go to the museum, but it closed already (10.00-17.00). Then, with the consideration of starving – would ruin the wonderful trip, so the first itinerary was going to the Little Hongkong first in Deck Tokyo Beach Mall.
Little Hongkong is located on the 6th/7th floor. Well, you’ll feel like being in Hongkong, a lot of authentic cantonese restaurants here, yum cha, dumplings. zannen.., my friend was so enthusiastic to have “char siew”(barbequed pork), but it’s not found there! 😀
Well, since I had not much interest of the food in Odaiba, I just ate the not-so-eye-catching menu set (moreover, it’s easily found in Indonesia too, I think), so I even didn’t remember my meal. The waiter of the restaurants are western woman, a bit disappointed too! 😛
After the nothing-special meal in Little Hongkong, we went out of the Mall, planning to go to the beach, the way here are too complicated – came in and out the mall. In one mall, “Island Mall”, I was suddenly attracted with the obake(ghost) thingy hanging, yup it’s a Sadako House, hahaha.. (I bet, you ever watched Ring, the horror Japanese movie). Well, actually the name isn’t Sadako House, it’s only how I named it. The name is Mystery of Daiba (台場 怪奇ーdaiba kaiki）.
Anyway, I just wanted share a lil about this! xixixixi.. There’s a TV in front of the kippu uriba (the ticket counter), it showed the current people inside the mystery house.
The scene showing a woman could not run away, just standing and shouted! kowai sou! 😀
My friend actually didn’t want to go, but because i was so excited, then we finally bought the ticket. hahaha. We’re equipped with torch, and string.
My friend kept saying, “it’s my first time“, uumm.. as for me, I just try to think from the logic side that it’s not for real, it’s just a game, so I was too relax. hahaha.
It’s our turn! We started entering the room, it’s dark with the backsound just like in the horror movies. Passing slowly, it’s only mystery ambiance.. but then lurking obake appeared and chased us so quick, my friend pulling the string, so I really hade no chance to see the obake. What I felt was the obake about 5 cm behind me (I was in the back) and the voice’s so near to my ears. hahahaha..
One obake’s passed, my heart’s pumping, I think. 😛 then we walked to small alley, but then there’s the quite alike scary thing appeared – didn’t know from where. We shouted and ran. hahaha, and then the same thing again. Then, we just got the way out from the mystery house. It’s an excited one, I laughed a lot outside, and asked my friend to buy another ticket again. But i failed negotiating to win the deal! 😀
“No.. no.. I paid only for being scared..“. Haha, I was just curious to see the obake-s.
The lesson learnt : if you have heart disease, please don’t try this! it’s entirely different with the Indonesians’ version, in which the ghost just appeared and you didn’t even feel that you’re scared with the effects! 😀
Paying 500yen for it, was just for food digestion and some warming up before going to the beach. qeqeqeqe. We went out from the mall, on the way to the beach, we passed by the koen, it’s nothing to see in the koen(park) at night. So just for a while, we continued the way to the beach. The view’s really splendid, it’s the best in night, I thought. The lights’re shimmering, with drizzle setting! There’re a lot of couples having their romantic moment. Argh!
Turning my body, I couldn’t speak out, only the feeling of how I admired and loved the moment at that time! The view even better at night as compared to the time we arrived.
I wanted to spend my night in the beach, huhuhuhuhu..
Hey, hey, remember!! the list you have are waiting for your visit
I should leave the splendid beach, the next destination is Fuji TV.
Fuji TV is good for the sight seeing spot, you can view the panorama of night light.
Before going to one place, it’s my habit to do some findings.
And that time, I got the trick of how to minimize the budget with maximum pleasure I might gain. Well, there’s a simple trick of not paying the admission fee in Fuji TV (in case for you need it when going to Odaiba) :
Riding the escalator towards the 7th Fl, there’re 2 elevators, and the trick comes of not going to the crowd because the crowd usually walk towards the promotion’s yelling of buying entrance ticket.:D The crowd will pay 500yen and took the left side elevator to 25th Fl. So, take the right side, moving up to 24th Fl. It’s just one storey different, you can view the splendid panorama without paying 500yen.
Well, it’s just the trick I found from the expert. I didn’t prove if it’s still free of charge, because it might be change. The schedule was just too tight, so we planned not enjoying the panorama, the beach view’s enough.
Then we walked to Venus Fort, it’s part of Pallete town, it’s the shopping mall in the style of 18th century South European town – Renaissance style. Again, i could just admire the architecture! For shopaholics, this is the worth to see – spot for the fashions, cosmetics shops.
As for me, enjoying the gorgeous architecture’s just enough. 😀
Tired of walking and it’s even too late, so we went to the Statue of Liberty – the replica of one in Paris, France. It’s of course good to take the photo shot without going to France.
After that, we went to Oedo Onsen Monogari. We didn’t have our onsen (public hot spring bath), only a little while watching of how many people still came in to have their onsen.
It’s tiring, taking rest for a while before at the end, we went home.
A long way to home, I arrived at my eki(station) at 12 am sth, cycling all the way home while it also rained, i worried of my yukata i bought would be wet, but luckily it’s safe!
Taihen desu ga tanoshikatta yo.
