Located on the man-made island of Odaiba in Tokyo Bay, DiverCity is one of the best shopping/dining/entertainment complexes in all of Tokyo. If you’re coming to Odaiba, don’t miss it!

Most people know DiverCity because of the huge Gundam statue outside the south side of the complex. Sure, it’s a great spot for a selfie or three, but it’s only the beginning of the fun here. There are several floors of shops that cover most of the major Japanese brands and many international ones. Then, there’s the awesome food court/restaurant floor and all the attractions like the VR museum and the play park for kids. There’s even a bouldering wall for sportier kids.
If you’re coming all the way down to Odaiba, this should definitely be on your itinerary.
