After a night in our smallish room in Shinbashi (but well located), and watching trains go by through the window, Jennifer got to enjoy the yummy Japanese breakfast included with the room before we went to Odaiba.
I had heard that Odaiba had a lot of cool things, so we took a train there, and started exploring on foot:
Next we went up the Fuji TV station building and its interesting sphere that doubles as an observation point:
they have cheerleaders in Japan now?
Next, we walked to Miraikan -- National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation. I thought would be worth an hour or two but that was a big mistake, we ended up spending over 5 hours there, it was that good. I'm not sure how I can put this, but it was the most advanced science museum I've ever seen anywhere: particle accelerators, neutrino detection at the Super Kamiokande (proving that they have a mass), super conditivity with a levitation demo, very deep sea exploration, DNA/SNP taylored medecine, Asimo demo, and more. Seriously, this put all the other science museums in the dust so much, that it wasn't even funny.
They had a demo on superconductivity:
Their very deep sea submarine
Asimo was there of course:
Which other science museums teach you about quantum particles and neutrinos?
nice displays on radiation
neutrino detectors from super Kamiokande
the big bang and the expansion of the universe
By then, we had little time left for the Toyota Megaweb showcase. We only spent 40mn there and it was worth more, but we had run out of time, and that time had been better spent at Miraikan.
