Odaiba (お台場?) is a large artificial island in Tokyo Bay, Japan, across the Rainbow Bridge from central Tokyo. It was initially built for defensive purposes in the 1800s, dramatically expanded during the late 20th century as a seaport district, and has developed since the 1990s as a major commercial, residential and leisure area.

Daiba (台場?) formally refers to one district of the island development in Minato Ward. The Odaiba name is commonly used to refer to the entire Tokyo Waterfront Secondary City Center (東京臨海副都心 Tokyo Rinkai Fukutoshin?) which includes the Ariake and Aomi districts of Kōtō Ward and the Higashi-Yashio district of Shinagawa Ward.

Wakasu (若洲?) is an island located in Koto, Tokyo. Wakasu, like many other areas of Tokyo, is manmade. Save for the camping ground, Wakasu was constructed on a base of trash, a form of land reclamation common in Japan.

Roughly half of the island is an industrial zone, while the other half contains a golf course and a popular camping ground.

The 18-hole golf course and the campground attract many people from all over Tokyo.

 

 

History

The western part of the ward was formerly part of Fukagawa Ward of Tokyo City. It suffered severe damage in the Great Kantō Earthquake and was heavily bombed during World War II.

The special ward was founded on March 15, 1947 by the merger of the wards of Fukagawa and Jōtō.
