For a lively, ocean-inspired experience, visit Koto’s Toyosu area. This man-made island is home to the famous Toyosu Market, which is the location of the rebranded and relocated Tsukiji Fish Market (inner market). Watch lively tuna, seafood, and produce auctions from observation windows, shop for non-perishable goods at Uogashi Yokocho Market, and dine on some exquisite sushi. Aside from the market, Toyosu is also home to Lalaport Toyosu, which is one of the largest shopping malls in central Tokyo and filled with international and national brands, restaurants, and a cinema! A noteworthy spot in the mall is Kidzania, which is an amusement park where children can act out different professions.
After Toyosu, hop over to the nearby Odaiba area, which is another man-made island and a hub of high-tech entertainment! Admire the iconic Rainbow Bridge, shop at premium spots, relax on seaside parks and beaches, and marvel at the futuristic cityscape. Be sure to check out Tokyo Big Sight too, which is the largest convention center in Japan! The center hosts numerous conferences, exhibitions and events throughout the year, and the building itself is a modern work of art, characterized by four large inverted pyramids.
Interested in a one-of-a-kind experience? Toyosu and Odaiba are home to the extremely popular teamLab exhibits. teamLab Borderless (Odaiba) and teamLab Planets (Toyosu) feature surreal exhibits that push beyond conventional art and immerse visitors in 3D worlds that play with colors, lights, mirrors, and more.
