The new Gundam statue in Tokyo is Accessible …mostly

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.

Unfortunately…

… both the photo deck platform and special goods shop only have stairs and are not accessible.
