A day in the Bay Area of Tokyo

January 20, 2017


Tokyo Bay Area, now known as Tokyo Waterfront City has become a very popular spot to visit. 


There are many attractions including museums, Rainbow Bridge, shopping centres, the beach, Fuji Television and much more.


The bay area has an interesting history. Shiodome, long ago served as a samurai residential district and was subsequently named with this function in mind - 'shio' meaning 'tide' and 'dome' stopping - the term can be translated as 'embankment'; a service the samurai here provided for Edo castle; the current Imperial Palace. 


We decided to spend the day visiting the local attractions and then finishing with a night time meal at one of the many restaurants that can be found in the area.  After a quick train ride on the Yurikamome Line we stopped at both Shiodome and Odaiba.  


The day was very cold and the winds were strong.  Night time views were spectacular with the city lights in the background and Rainbow Bridge in the foreground.

About Me

I'm an avid traveller based on the Gold Coast, Australia.  I love my photography.  My other passions involve outdoor activities, including snowboarding, surfing and  wakeboarding.  You'll find me riding every morning, swimming as much as I can and loving late night walks with my pups along the beach front.  Wildlife and nature amaze me and my favourite time is spent in the wilderness.
