Odaiba お台場

View from the escalator of the Tōkyō Odaiba monorail station. Daiba (fort) refers to the reclaimed land in the Bay of Tōkyō which were constructed at the end of the Edo Period to protect the city against attackers approaching from the sea. During the 1980s the redevelopment of the islands into a business district was started but development was critically slowed down and is still underway.
