Looking out over Tokyo Bay is a giant robot, a 1:1, 59-foot model of a Gundam Mobile Suit. Here's what it looks like up close.
The anime Mobile Suit Gundam launched in 1979. Though there were only 43 episodes, many spin-offs, sequels and more have happened since.
For the story behind this massive mech suit, check out Up close and personal with Tokyo's 59-foot Gundam statue.
Your humble narrator at risk of getting stepped on (if the Mobile Suit was actually... mobile). It's impressively tall for robot model.
Though the surroundings aren't exactly epic, the sunset during my visit was, so that pretty much makes up for it.
The detail is incredible. Like a ultra-expensive toy just scaled up. Way up.
Ostensibly, this is the original RX-78-2 Gundam suit.
As you can see, it's quite an attraction. I arrived before sunset, had dinner, and left shortly after it got dark. There were people of all ages taking photos and selfies the entire time.
