DAIBA BEACHFRONT PARK IN TOKYO.

 Daiba beachfront park is one of the popular area in Tokyo. We went there after a long time.

                            久しぶりに、お台場に行きました。


Daiba means battery park or fort. A few forts were made to protect Edo(former Tokyo) from other countries.

Many people would enjoy here for wind surfing and swimming in summer.

    What a sightseeing with blue color♡♡♡ We've just finished dinner and my husband LOVED to see "the sea bus designed by Reiji Matumoto" ; he likes 『宇宙戦艦ヤマト』 p;)
    I checked 落とし積み with pc, which doesn't make horizontal line and learned 石垣 has several way of constant. Thank you very much for the new knowledge.

    1. Dear CQUEK.
      Thank you very much for your comment. I will explain how to go to Daiba monorail station from Tokyo railroad station. You need to get on Yamanote line bound for Shinagawa. Two stop from Tokyo, You need get off at Shinbashi station. Then get on a monorail named Yurikamome, and six stop is Daiba. It takes one or two minutes to go to Gundum by walking from Daiba station. OK?

  9. This was so interesting! We love boats and harbors ... what an amazing contrast between the old-style tour boat and that ultra-modern one. Loved the robot statue and just the "big-city" aspect ... thank you for showing us.

  12. こんにちは、お台場の景色も、あらためて拝見すると絵になる景色ばかりですね。
    3枚目の親子とカモメの写真は、ちょっと印象的でぐっときました。
    あと御座船、安宅丸と宇宙船のような海上バスの対比もとても面白いです。
    花粉が飛ばなくなったら撮りにいってみたいと思いました。

       こんばんは。お元気になられて良かったですね。お褒めいただきありがとうございます。久しぶりに行きましたので、とても新鮮な気分になれました。 あのお母さんは、マスクをしてましたので、それが写らない写真は少なくて苦労しました。
      あのバスはヒミコと言って、浅草とお台場を1日に数回往復しています。 時刻表を調べれば、浅草でも撮れます。

  15. このポスト面白かったです。 この数年お台場には行ってないので、懐かしくもありました。 松本零士さんって、聞いたことあります。漫画家さんですかね? その海上バス乗ってみたいです。

      おはようございます。 松本零士さんは「銀河鉄道999」という漫画で有名ですが、私は読んだ事はありません。海上バスは浅草と台場を往復しています。途中で浜離宮で下船する事も出来ます。

  17. Good photos Minoru. I love the sea!!
    In the 80s in Spain there was a cartoon series Mazinger Z. They are a Japanese artist Go Nagai. They saw my children. I dedicated a post, it was very famous. Statue Gandum reminded me :)
    I'll leave the link:

      Thank you very much for your comment. Mazinger Z is very similar to Gandum. But they are different.
      Gandum You Tube is as follows. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8k4QANktzPU.
      Wishing you a wonderful week.
