We took my parents to Odaiba to gorge ourselves on pancakes and whipped cream. We succeeded in that, and also saw some other stuff.
This is my favorite building. It’s from the future.
The Rainbow Bridge, seen in such classics as Cars 2.
See those two buildings in the distance? Those are the docks where the giant mecha lands to recharge. One for each foot.
Which giant mecha? This one.
There was a lovely flower … display? I’m not sure what to call it, but it was a bunch of flowers planted along a walkway that would only be there for a limited time.
We also went to Venus Fort, which is a mall made to look like Venice even though the name implies outer space. It’s because the Japanese vowels are all soft, so it’s pronounced veh-nuh-s, like Venice. Anyway, the girls love it there, and I got an awesome skirt with zippered panels all over it (skirt not pictured).
