The Third Daiba

A historical fortress at the waterfront in Odaiba

I have visited the futuristic district of Odaiba frequently and I always wondered about the small island-like structures on the waterfront between the Decks Tokyo Beach and the Rainbow Bridge. During an early morning walk in the area, I found out that the place is called The Third Daiba and that it is actually a national historical landmark. It is one of the many man-made islands erected in the mid nineteen century, serving as a fortress to protect from foreign ships getting too close to the city of Tokyo. The Third Daiba has been a great find, with the ruins of the fortress still in place, including canons used for defense. The views of the bridge and other Odaiba landmarks from here are beautiful!
