Rainbow Bridge and Odaiba

Posted in Animals, Places by tokyobling on January 13, 2015

Winter time means fewer festivals and fewer events here in Tokyo, which in turns means that I have more time to just wander around. It is hard to resist the long beautiful walk from Tamachi station over the Rainbow Bridge to the artificial Odaiba island in Tokyo Bay. The beach might be artificial as well, but for inland city dwellers even this combination of sand and ocean is like balm for the soul. On weekends there are usually a few couples out getting their pictures taken, and I got one of them in my photos. From Odaiba beach I walked further on to Diver City and Venus Fort, two of the biggest shopping malls in Odaiba, and through to Aomi port on the ocean side of Odaiba, where the biggest and fastest cargo ships stop by. I am afraid I also bothered one innocent duck the stoically endured my photography. All in all a great day to spend a lazy day in Tokyo!

    That looks to me like it could be a female scaup duck, but I’ve never seen one on land, only rafts of them on the water.

      I think you are right! There were many more in the water, this one preferred land for some reason!

    Hi!
    I’m a Japanese, living in Saitama PREF.
    I’m impressed by your photos and understanding about Japan.
    Odaiba is one of my favorite place to shoot.
