Odaiba お台場 Tokyo Part I: Toyota Mega Web

Last year's Tokyo visit was hurried, and we didn't get to go around as much as we wanted. With additional four days this year, we had the leisure to spend one whole day around Odaiba, a popular shopping and entertainment district on Tokyo Bay.

Being one of Tokyo's most popular tourist destinations, Odaiba is split to four areas that are dotted with huge buildings, malls, museums, entertainment areas and convention centers. 

First stop was the Palette Town where we visited the Toyota Mega Web. It was basically a museum of cars from old to new, and I almost got dizzy with the number I saw.

We were there for the 12:20pm F1 simulation, which disappointingly did not welcome pregnant women. Too bad. So while waiting for them to finish, I ended up..

Playing some arcade-style GT instead!

Some car shots:

The popular Gran Turismo car Cerumo Supra

Several Lexus on display

The Crown Athlete

Toyota Estimas or more popularly known as Previa here

Well-loved family cars Land Cruiser and Prado

The boxer Toyota 86

The Corolla Axio

Toyota Prius

A cute retro-looking FJ Cruiser

MPV Toyota Isis

Toyota Vellfire, similar to the locally available Alphard

We could have learned more about the cars if we paid for the catalogues (nah). Here's a line of catalogue vending machine stationed among the car displays.

I honestly wasn't able to go around much because the place was really huge! When we were about done, we stopped by a gift shop located at the ground floor, where they sold F1-related goodies.

Cellphone cases

Jackets, shirts, bags and baseball caps

The place had items on sale and I was able to get a cellphone case, a bag and a cap at a good price. Here's me trying some of the stuff out.
