Guide of Odaiba Area

It is located in the east side of Tokyo. Odaiba area is a place close to the sea and it was created in Edo area but nowadays is area full of shopping malls and so on
In the crowded Tokyo you will find this area very convenient because there is a resort and theme park here.
Because it´s close to the sea, it´s one of the best place to be in summer.
