As we have already seen in the previous post, the Odaiba area is very modernist, made for people and created thinking about the entertainment of all citizens and also for tourists who are thousands a year who visit this particular area every year.

Just in front of Diver City Tokyo building, RX-78-2 with its 20 meters high welcome us. This robot is fully functional, because arms and legs joints are mobile like a 1/144 Gunpla is.

Its location has changed for several times since initially was located in Shizuoka at the headquarters of the company Bandai that owns the franchise of the best-known Japanese anime robots.

Inside the Diver City shopping center, you will find as most other malls in the world, restaurants, clothing shops, complements stores… like many others. So here it is true that not because Japan is special …

Just kidding, of course it is special. Inside the Diver City apart of the Gundam Museum there is a spectacular and curious amusement park. Now I have surprised huh?

Inside the museum around 1000 figures, from different periods, versions, and at different stages of manufacturing houses to understand the evolution of Gunpla in the last 36 years are displayed. All them dust proof, controlled humidity and controlled lighting.

These  Gunpla models can be purchased at a great quite surprising variety of scales, and are available in plastic-resin and metal, at 1:35, 1:48, 1:60, 1: 100, 1: 144. Come for all tastes, ages and possibilities to place in your home.
