Originally, Odaiba designated the small fortress islands constructed to protect Edo from attack by sea. The name now represents a large artificial island in the port of Tokyo. One of the original islands has been restored and is open to the public now as 'the metropolitan Daiba Park'.
Odaiba has many distinctive buildings like the Fuji TV studios, where studio related activities are open to the public making it a popular destination for the TV studio program’s fans.
The shopping areas Decks, aqua city and palette town also draw large number of visitors. The area facing the Tokyo waterfront with his panoramic view of The Rainbow bridge, and its dramatic sunset views receive also a great number of visitors including passengers on yakatabune boats than visit the area every night.
