We started at Venus Fort, after deciding we didn't really need to go on the big wheel. I love Venus Fort, it's incredibly tacky and fake. The upper levels are supposed to look like a medieval Italian city and it even has a fake sky. Good for rainy days although we haven't had any all holiday!
Do I look excited XD
The bottom level is Venus Family, which has a Hello Kitty mini park, lots of kids clothes shops, and a big Nitori. We wanted this sofa and Kotatsu arrangement. Maybe when we can afford a shipping container :p
Now the best thing about Venus Family is that it welcomes dogs! There's even a cafe which you are invited to bring your dogs into!
And there is a big pet shop as well. Unlike an unpleasant one I saw in Shinjuku, this one has large enclosure where the puppies are kept in groups. I don't think puppies should be kept in petshops at all really, but at least these dogs seemed happy and not stressed.
French Bulldog and Miniature Pinscher. I loved the Minpin, she was totally mad :)
Chihuahua crossed with something.
Dachschund and Chihuahua X Yorkie
Next we went upstairs to the main shopping area. I love the cheesiness of this fountain, it makes me very happy :)
There was a perfume stall selling a lemon and grapefruit perfumes, it made the whole place smell lovely!
The stores here are mostly import and designer so not much interest to us, but there was a Francfranc outlet! The ultimate Zakka store with reduced prices! Although we bought nothing :p
Here is the view from the back entrance of Venus Fort. Don't you love how try-hard futuristic the buildings on Odaiba are? I do :p
That walkway took us to Decks, a simple cheap shopping centre. It has a relaxed atmosphere and a little grubbiness. It used to have a big Honeys but it's been replaced by some kind of Bistro. It has a Takoyaki 'museum' but we only tried one. It was super tasty!
Decks also houses the Tokyo Trick Art Museum. It's pretty fun to go as a couple, but maybe better with more people! Just a warning- this museum would be totally pointless to go to on your own!
We took a lot of silly photos, I'll just share a couple!
This room freaked me out when I first stepped in it XD
It was dark when we left, and the view towards Tokyo was beautiful :)
The next day we went to Kappabashi to look at plastic food! There was plenty, it was very cool! Everything from parfait to burgers to shabu shabu! Made me hungry~
Amongst the kitchen supply shops was an artificial flower shop. Perfect for me as I'm making my own wedding bouquet! I found something which may work well :)
That's all today~
