The Life-Size Gundam

Did you know that there is a place in Japan where a life-size 1/1 scale Gundam stands?
Its huge. 

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.
