Anime attractions in Odaiba: Gundam
1. Scale Gundam Unicorn Statue
For mecha fans, it’s a dream coming true to see Banagher’s big boy in person. The spectacle anime attraction is when you see it transform into Destroy mode at night in a sound and light show.
Transforming light show every 30 min from 7:30 to 9:30.
2. Gundam Café
There is a mini Gundam cafe and shop behind the Unicorn. You can get pretty 1/144-scale Gundam pastries there. The Gundam Café shop is very cute and has items ranging from genuine Jaburo coffee to beam saber umbrellas.
3. Gundam Base
This Gundam Base is a big store and exhibition space where you can see how gunpla model kits are made.
Shingeki No Kyojin & Ghost In The Shell VR Games anime attractions
The mall right behind Gundam is DiverCity where you will find hexaRide, an immersive 360-degree VR experience. It’s just like you were in the story of Attack on Titan(volumes 9 and 10)
As for the Ghost in the Shell ride, you as a member of public security will have to help the mayor as you escort the defence minister and defend him from crypto-criminals.
You should try both VR Games before leaving the mall. It’s exquisite.
