There’s no need to fly all the way to the US to get a glimpse of the Statue of Liberty because you have it right here in Odaiba (albeit a miniature version of it). To commemorate the friendship between Japan & France, a French Statue of Liberty was placed in Odaiba from April 1998 to January 1999. Many locals loved the statue that they wanted to have one of their own. So a replica statue was created with permission from the city of Paris. The present replica statue is just like its original counterpart, and it makes for a fun photo opportunity. Snapping a photo with the figure is an excellent way to commemorate your date in Odaiba.
