An artificial island, Odaiba is a fairly new town that has gained recognition in the last three decades. It is home to worldly events such as Tokyo Motor Show, Comic Market, and more.

Although there are some residential areas around it, the island is mainly an entertainment center with many beautiful sites for everyone visiting to enjoy. Here, we list the 5 spots that are especially great for Instagrammers, or simply for your personal album.

The glowing bridge that connects the island from the rest of Tokyo is possibly one of the highlights of your trip to Odaiba. The bridge stands gloriously on top of Tokyo Bay, creating a great scene for every amateur and aspiring cameraman. It is best to include the skyscrapers in the background with Tokyo Tower. It is popular to take photos from Odaiba-kaihinkoen (Odaiba Marine Park).

Yes, you read it right. There is a miniature Statue of Liberty in Odaiba.
