The artificial island of Odaiba came out of the waters in the 19th century by Tokugawa order. While originally a set of fortresses meant to protect the city of Edo (Formerly Tokyo), it is now a popular area for shopping and entertainment. It is ripe with many shopping centers, cinemas and museums, all under the watchful eye of a 18-meter high Gundam (a manga robot).
The district of Odaiba will host the IBC, volleyball, tennis, gymnastics as well as the new climbing and 3 x 3 basketball venues.
The island is accessible by public transport from the Yurikamome and Rinkai lines as well as by the very impressive Rainbow Bridge which offers a wonderful view over Tokyo and its bay.
The Odaiba area will be at the heart of the Tokyo 2020 plan, but it remains poorly suited in terms of accommodation and nightlife. It is therefore better to choose a well connected destination nearer the city center. VPI advises you to find your suitable location in Tokyo for the 2020 Olympic Games – contact us.
