Statue of Liberty

Odaiba & Tokyo Bay

A very popular photo-op, with the Rainbow Bridge in the background, is this 11m-tall replica of Lady Liberty, a fixture on Odaiba's waterfront since 1998.

France's original replica from 1889 was moved from Île aux Cygnes in Paris to Odaiba to celebrate Franco-Japanese ties. But the statue was so popular that the city decided to install a permanent replica.
