The Odaiba Statue of Liberty is an exact replica of the famous New York Statue of Liberty. It was built in 1998 as part of a joint project between Japan and France to commemorate the good relationship between the two countries.
French sculptor, Frédéric Bartholdi, who also designed the original Statue of Liberty, was commissioned to design and build the statue in Japan. The statue is about 12 meters tall and made of copper, just like the original. It is located on the artificial island of Odaiba, facing the Tokyo port, and is a popular tourist destination in the city. From the Odaiba Statue of Liberty you can enjoy stunning views of Tokyo Harbor and the city skyline. It is also a landmark of the city and a reminder of the good relationship between Japan and France.

Home-meal with a family at home
We are a family teaching how to cook Japanese home-meal at our home in Kyoto. Let's cook together!
After we meet at our bike location, we take off as a group to our first stop called "Yoshikien", a garden gathering 3 styles Japanese gardens in a unique location; a way to enjoy and rediscover the place at every season. Then, we stop by "Nandaimon gate" to admire the Buddhism style building and walk around the place, petting and feeding the deers.
