The artificial island of Odiaba: gigantic shopping malls, a huge Gundam statue, Toyota Megaweb for both modern and historic Toyotas, the Fuji TV building, a replica Statue of Liberty, plus some other stuff I didn't see: Panasonic's big showroom, the Martime Museum, a few others.
Shopping may not be my thing, but the assortment of restaurants (including some lousy curry. doh) and stores is actually impressive. The scale of the place reminds me of Las Vegas, and some of the malls (esp. Venus Fort) feel like replicas of big malls in Vegas, 'cept the sushi is better here. *grins* Toyota Megaweb has a ton of space and a ton of cars and no sales pressure at all; a big showroom where you can gaze to your content.
Met up with Sam and Parveen afterwards for okonoymaki. Making it to the original place we'd planned was a bit too far considering the rain (crazy taxi rides!), so we hit a place called Kobe Gyunta in Ginza instead. Very pretty food, sadly the taste was disappointing. Ran down to Roppongi for a second dinner but hit a few snags, but it was all good-- t'was good to meet with Sam and Parveen!
