From the Rainbow Bridge Walkways to Daiba Park

After crossing the bridge, let’s move on to the square-shaped park we saw from the bridge.

This park is located due north of Odaiba-kaihin-koen Station and has great views of Decks Tokyo Beach and Fuji TV Building over the sea.

The park was established on a former cannon fort site, where you can see the remains of forts, ammunition chamber and military office. Odaiba, literally cannon forts, was a cluster of artificial islands designed attack the US Navy fleet. The nearby Bird’s Island, designated an off-limits area, is a sanctuary for wild plants and birds.

This is where history of Odaiba started. Let’s roll and explore Odaiba!

Odaiba-kaihin Park

Let’s stroll along the beach of Odaiba Kaihin Park.

This park, located adjacent to commercial facilities, is the most accessible in Odaiba. It has both a natural beach and an artificial beach, attracting people interested in clam digging, windsurfing and fishing.

Walking on sandy beach is a rare experience in central Tokyo. It is nice to take off shoes and walk barefoot. There is a place you can wash sand off your feet, so don’t worry!

You can get a splendid view of scurrying boats on the bay and the Rainbow Bridge with Tokyo Tower in the background. The light from pleasure boats in the evening adds to a wonderful ambience. Let’s walk westward along the beach!

What is that? It is a massive, anchor-shaped monument. The floor is slippery, so watch your steps.

Looking at the Statue of Liberty on your left, continue walking along the leafy path toward Shiokaze Park, then you will find benches or resting places.

Shiokaze Park

Shiokaze Park (largest park in the Rinkai Waterfront area)

Walk along for a while, and you will come to the stone-paving Coast Deck. This is a part of Shiokaze Park, the largest park in the Rinkai Waterfront area.

Take in the beautiful scenery from the Coast Deck.

The white objects over there are called ‘Sunday Afternoon’. It is a set of wondrous sculptures that take on an entirely different shape depending on the direction of view points. Try with your own eyes.

Another moment beyond is a tower called ‘Tower of Sunset’. You can see a mysterious light and shade at the time of sunset.

Good smell is wafting toward us. They are doing the barbecue! With advance reservation, you can come here empty-handed and rent all the necessary utensils. After the meal, sunbathing on the wooden terrace and exercise on the lawn (Sun Plaza) is fantastic.

A highway divides the park into north and south sections, which are connected by the Shiokaze Bridge.

Let’s cross this bridge to go to the south section. You will see children playing on the ship-shaped monument. This is a comprehensive playground, called the Shiokaze-maru, with slides, tire swings and other equipment. Climb up to the deck and you will feel like a captain of the ship.

A round, stone-paving area over there is the Fountain Plaza. There is a fountain with water dancing rhythmically. You will be drenched standing too close.

Liking the fountain and the park’s south exit is Water and Greenery Promenade, a popular walkway lined with palm trees.

Shiokaze Park definitely has many different attractions.

Aomikita-futo Park

Through Higashi-yashio Ryokudou Park and Aomi Kita-futou Park to Fune-no-kagakukan Station

Look, there is a large building shaped like a full-sized ocean liner
This is the Museum of Maritime Science. The building is modelled after the luxurious passenger liner Queen Elizabeth II.

Next to the museum lies Higashi-yashio Ryokudou Park. The wide walkways surrounded by palm trees and flowers offer a good jogging route.

The orange ship right in front of us is Japan’s first Antarctic observation ship called Soya.
The ship has been moored since May 1979 as a permanent exhibition of the Museum of Maritime Science.

The brick-paved walkway turns twice to take you to another park, Aomi Kita-futo Park.

These two parks have a lot to offer to learn about ships and marine transportation.

Access from the sea is convenient with the pier of Water Bus cruise closely located.
