Palette Town is a huge shopping and theme park complex. Since its opening in 1999 it has become a landmark in Tokyo thanks to its Daikanransha, a giant Ferris wheel which is one of the largest of the world with a height of 115 meters. The complex is formed by Venus Fort, a shopping mall decorated in a classic European style, Mega Web, a Toyota showroom with test driving cars, and Leisureland, an entertainment complex featuring arcade video games, karaoke rooms and sports games.
There are several huge shopping mall centers in Odaiba: Decks Tokyo Beach, with more than 130 shops and restaurants and a Sega entertainment center, Aqua City Odaiba, which contains several stores, restaurants and a unique Ramen food theme park which offers flavors from all around Japan, and Diver City Tokyo Plaza, which features a massive robot statue from the Gundam anime series as its main attraction, as well as a theme park based on the popular series.
Tokyo Teleport Station
Odaiba can be reached from the Tokyo metropolitan area via the Yurikamome Line and Rinkai Line. The Yurikamome is an elevated line which runs from Shimbashi Station on the JR Yamanote Line and offers spectacular views as it crosses the Rainbow bridge. The Rinkai Line, on the other hand, is a subway line which connects with several JR Lines stations.
Odaiba can be easily explored on foot from either Daiba station on the Yurikamome Line or Tokyo Teleport station on the Rinai Line.
