|Did you know that there is a place in Japan where a life-size 1/1 scale Gundam stands? |
A few days ago a fellow University of California friend named Andrew proposed a trip to Odaiba, a futuristic man-made island created for shopping and entertainment. It will also be the future site of many venues for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics!

|Myself and Andrew who also really wanted to see the Gundam|
|Odaiba has its own rail line that travels over the streets of Tokyo, |
Tokyo Bay, and even throughout Odaiba.
|Odaiba was filled with very large malls with various themes and attractions.|
|It was also a very lively place with all kids of street performers and shops.|
|There is even a huge Cat Cafe there where you can have coffee|
or other drinks while enjoying the company of cats.
|After walking through Odaiba, we finally found the Gundam!|
|Its huge, seriously. Probably as tall as a 4-5 story building!|
|There is also a cool show where the Gundam's head moves and steam/lights surround it.|
|Andrew and I then headed to a beach where we got some pictures of |
Rainbow Bridge and the Tokyo Skyline.
