Odaiba


Believe me,
that was a happy age,
before the days of architects,
before the days of builders.
Seneca

Odaiba (お台場?) is a large artificial island in Tokyo Bay, Japan, across the Rainbow Bridge from central Tokyo. It was initially built for defensive purposes in the 1800s, dramatically expanded during the late 20th century as a seaport district, and has developed since the 1990s as a major commercial, residential and leisure area.

Odaiba is a massive work of engineering and architecture.
Odaiba is a collection of attractions.
Odaiba is crowded on week-end.
Odaiba has nothing belonging to human sensitivity.
I post some of the picture taken a month ago.

    Moi,
    Just for you:
    Thanks for that Slideshow. I was just sooo tired had a tea and a left over pulla from a meeting and because I was reading the whole day it was nice to watch something unfamiliar. Beautiful picture the one with some shell shaped industrial(?) halls that disapeared into the sky(somehow) and cranes and so on. Liked it.
    ciao
