Tokyo Bay in Odaiba! These photos bring back memories of such a dreamy and sunny day. I wore my brightest blouse to match the weather (those leggings were ditched about 5 minutes after these photos were taken). Odaiba is home to a lot of varied attractions, predominantly based around science and technology but also including food, shopping and entertainment – something for everybody!
There was a festival atmosphere on the day we went, with buskers, street performers and food vendors everywhere. The silver building is the Fuji Television building – I’ve wanted to see this building for an incredibly long time. It’s so huge! We spent a lazy half hour in the bay watching the boats with Rainbow Bridge in the background and of course the mini Lady Liberty watching over us. It was so tranquil sat by the boats on the sand; Tokyo is renowned for being one of the busiest places in the world, but in Odaiba we found a moment of serenity.

That bridge is stunning – how strange that they have replicas of statues…
Absolutely beautiful pictures girl!
looks like such a pretty place, you’re really making me want to go to japan! or just to travel in general. that blouse is beautiful, such a lovely colour!
and re: your trip to helsinki, i can recommend some places, although the last time i did anything touristy i was about 12 and more interested in the zoo and linnanmäki, an amusement park (both of which are great, however!). i still like to walk around linnanmäki and have some candyfloss because i like the atmosphere, haha. the most iconic things to see are the cathedrals (helsinki and uspenski) and the market/harbour, i think. ateneum is the best art museum in finland and kiasma has modern art. i really love the suomenlinna, a fortress that you have to take a ferry or a boat to, but it’s really worth it! and the botanical garden is really lovely, too. there’s also some parks, beaches and nice parts of town to have walks in, but i can’t remember any of their names.. but if you want to know anything else, just let me know! :-) my sister actually lives in helsinki, so if i don’t know something i can always ask her to name some nice places, haha. also, look forward to all the moomin things! sorry that this became a bit of an essay! xx
Oh my gosh Laura thank you so much for such a detailed guide! This is brilliant! I really appreciate it!! :) I won’t lie… we are primarily going for the Moomins… xx
It does transmit such calmness, true! The silver building is great – and that suits as TV building! So glad you could see it, after a long time you wanted, as you said! I loved the yellow top – I like yellow items, they bring good mood instantly! You look lovely as usual and I loved the pictures (I love water scenarios!)
Aw, you look so pretty here. I love you in Yellow. Way too jealous of you being in Japan too, it’s my number one place to visit at the moment.
Thanks Em! I’ve got a lot more Japan to come..! x
LAILA! So happy to look through your photos from Japan (I am now catching up on your blog- overdue!)
You look positively chic just dropped in the Japanese landscape! I love the sunglasses + blouse (the whole look, really!!)
♥ perfectly Priya
