I love a good photo opportunity, and Japan is full of them; Temples, Shrines, Geisha, Robots – you name it, they have it! But if you want some truly unique photos of your time in Japan, look no further than the Trick Art Musuem in Odaiba, Tokyo!
The museum is just a short train ride from central Tokyo, and makes a great day trip for families and adults alike. The whole area around Odaiba is filled with shopping centers, theme parks, onsen and, a giant Gundam statue you can walk under. I spent a whole day and night there when I visited, sleeping in the Edo-themed onsen- which is another story entirely!
The museum itself is located inside the Decks Tokyo Beach Shopping Mall, and although it may be small, its big fun! It takes around an hour to go through the museum, taking pictures at every stop. We visited on a weekday morning, so it wasn’t very busy. If you go during peak times, it may take longer if you want to snap every trick, as you’ll have to wait for others to finish their turn.
Next to each picture, there’s a discription of how to pose in the shot. You’d think it would be obvious, but as some of them have you upside down (perspective wise anyway) it can get a bit confusing at times! I had so much fun posing for all the photos, and it’s a great laugh trying to get some of them to look right!
I don’t usually write about family travel, but this is definitely somewhere that would be a hit with the kids! And of course, all of us big kids can have a great time here too!
