Odaiba & Tokyo City – Day 9 & 10

Last two days in Tokyo! Since we had some time to spare, the Cat Café Mocha is a must-go for cat lovers. It’s a place for you to touch all the majestic and beautiful coated cats ranging from species such as the Ragdoll (my favourite!), Scottish Fold, British Shorthair and many more… Each café layout is different and unique. I went to the Shinjuku – largest cat café in Japan and Ikebukuro West branch – which is smaller. One conclusion… it’s a 10/10! Though most cats tend to be sleeping, we could still stroke and talk to them but just not carry them if you do not want the shopkeepers to “come after” you. Cat treats can also be purchased at ¥500. It’s the happiness seeing the kitties coming to you to have a lick at the sugar treats as some would even stand on their two hind feet.

Odaiba City is the next place to go especially if you are a Gundam fan or you have time to indulge in more shopping! Odaiba City is becoming increasingly popular with tourists as it is originally built from reclaimed land. There are lots of shopping, a Ferris Wheel, Onsen, symbolic Fuji TV station, VR Indoor Arcade, Statue of Liberty, Rainbow Bridge and many more. You can expect to spend an entire day if not more, to be able to cover every landmark on the list. This one-day trip only allowed me to do shopping at Diver City and Venus Fort, view the Megaweb Toyota City cars on display.

The Unicorn Gundam outside the Diver City is a replication of the RX-0 Unicorn Gundam where there is a daily light show to see it transform to the Gundam in Destroy mode where the frame could expand with pink lights. Unfortunately, this attraction was slightly disappointing as I thought that there would be more movements and the entire show only lasted for a short 3 minutes. Nevertheless, I had a great time visiting the Gundam Base Shop where I looted bags of limited edition Gundam. Totally worth it!
