Sushi, Odaiba and the Daikanransha

Odaiba Rainbow ferris wheel
After we got back from Takao san, we decided to get food and then go out to Odaiba for a little bit of a date evening. Odaiba is fairly famous for being a dating spot and was full of couples when we went. I had a great date there- 100% would recommend.

View of the Docomo building from our Airbnb- we were in the best location, seriously. We also saw these cute Hello Kitty construction posts near Shinjuku. I loved these so much. Just Japan things, am I right?

We went for sushi at Hamazushi in Takadanobaba- it was pretty cheap conveyor belt stuff, but it was so good!

And then we were off to Daiba! It took a fair while to get there from more central Tokyo, but I think it was worth the trip. Also the station there was called the Tokyo teleport station- how cute? Daiba feels so weird, because it's super artificial and fake, and also pretty 90s?  I really liked it, and I had a great date there <3 We went there to see the view of Tokyo and the rainbow bridge at night, which was so pretty~


I became slightly obsessed with ferris wheels while I was in Japan, and so I wasn't gonna pass up a chance to go on the daikanransha with bae. But before that, we had a little wander round Odaiba.



We got to the artificial beach (so cool) and there were loads of benches with a view of rainbow bridge. You can also just about see Tokyo tower behind the bridge:

We then wandered back round to the daikanransha, passing the Fuji TV building, a mini statue of Liberty, and of course the famous life sized gundam statue on the way.







Going on a ferris wheel is one of the cliché things to do on a date in Japan, so we went on the Daikanransha. It was really nice, and I think it was worth the wait.

After the Ferris wheel, we took some puri together and ate pancakes! Perfect date <3
Thanks for reading~
