If you went to Odaiba and didn’t take photo with the life-sized Gundam statue, then you can’t really tell people you’d been there. It’s like a MUST-DO!
Then we walked walked and walked to our next destination, Palette Town. Palette Town is a large shopping and entertainment complex consisting of the Venus Fort shopping mall, Toyota Mega Web, a Ferris Wheel, the Zepp Tokyo music venue and Tokyo Leisureland.
Took the above photo because it’s very very photo-worthy!
1) A cool and fashionable mummy
2) in wedges (that high), stroller and full of shopping bags
3) THE BABY LOOKS LIKE IT’S GONNA DROPPED OUT FROM THE CARRY BAG ANYTIME SOON!
And then, we reached Toyota Mega Web, a giant Toyota showroom that shows off all of Toyota's latest models, car accessories and technologies. Attractions include test driving of cars (requires driving license valid for Japan) and a museum exhibiting cars from past decades.
Super cool lah! There’s just so so so many models unknown to us!
It was announced that the demo of iReal will start in 5 minutes. Told you we’re like super lucky! We never really check and expect but it was just such nice coincidence that we get to see awesome shows!
It has two modes. The above photo you see is in Low-Speed Mode, the vehicle is upright, and moves around at 'walking pace' at similar eyesight height to pedestrians, without taking up a large amount of space.
In High-Speed Mode (above pic), the Toyota extends in length by leaning back and extending the single rear wheel to improve aerodynamics and stability, thus being able to achieve a speed of 18.6 mph, or 30 km/h. It leans into corners, like other tall, one-man vehicles such as the Segway, to prevent it from tipping over.
All info of iReal is just copy and paste from wikipedia.
We all entered for the test drive and they only allowed 3 English speakers and 3 Japanese speakers each time.
Pray hard hard!
After Toyota Mega Web, we then walked to Venus Fort, a shopping mall in the style of a 18th century South European town.
We met up with Fussy in Shinjuku and later decided we wanna have dinner in Shibuya, so we had to take train to Shibuya again.
