A trip to Tokyo Big Sight

You might be thinking what is Tokyo Big Sight… When I first heard the name, I thought that it is a place that can see the whole of Tokyo. But actually it is a International Convention Center. I went there last week for the Software Development Expo.

It is at the Tokyo Bay just south from Tokyo Tower. It is about 3 to 5 times bigger than Kuala Lumpur Convention Center. It has a unique cone shape tower at the main entrance that you won’t miss it. There are some interesting places around the area also like Tokyo Fashion Town, Mega Web, National Museum of Science and Aqua City. I will make a trip there in the future.

During the journey to Tokyo Big Sight, I saw Statue of Liberty standing near the Aqua City. My friend told me that the statue is the original statue that the “big” Statue of Liberty now standing in New York was made based on this statue here. This statue is much (a way lot) smaller then the New York ones. This statue was originally made in France then New York’s Statue of Liberty made based on the it. Then the original statue was moved to Japan just few years ago (I don’t know the exact date). Below picture is the route map of Tokyo Bay.
