For fans of giant robots and anime, you will be glad to know that the new Gundam statue at Odaiba is wheelchair accessible… mostly.
The giant 1:1-scale replica is 19.7 meters tall and based on the RX-0 Unicorn Gundam from the Gundam Unicorn series. The robot includes pulsating pink lights when it is in its Destroy Mode and a protruding horn when in Unicorn mode. The mecha’s rear thruster units are also illuminated.
The giant robot starts the day in Destroy Mode but transforms at 11:00, 13:00, 15:00, and 17:00 daily. At night, as the theme song plays, clips from the anime are projected onto the nearby shopping mall’s wall. The evening show is at 19:30, 20:00, 20:30, 21:00, and 21:30.
The statue is a 5-10 minute walk from the fully accessible Daiba Station on the Yurikamome Line, next to the DiverCity Tokyo Plaza shopping mall.
You can easily approach the statue in a wheelchair, and see it from all angles.
… both the photo deck platform and special goods shop only have stairs and are not accessible.
