About Gundam Base Tokyo
Tokyo Gundam Base, also known as the “Gundam Theme Park”, is located on the seventh floor of the Rinkai Fukutoshin shopping mall in Tokyo Bay, Japan, and is an amusement ride that allows you to experience Mobile Suit Gundam, a series that has been on air for more than 30 years, since 1979, and to enter the world of Gundam, a series that has continued to evolve to the present day.
The most iconic symbol of Tokyo Gundam Base is the 18-meter Gundam model, which was exhibited at Odaiba Shiokaze Park for 52 days in the summer of 2009 to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the broadcast of Mobile Suit Gundam, and attracted nearly 4.15 million visitors, creating a huge buzz. A 17-meter-long giant painting is displayed in the entrance hall, which is a breathtaking sight to behold. The interior of the park is divided into paid exhibits and free exhibits, and is divided into four main sections, namely the Model Display Hall, the Dome Image Gallery, the Experience Area and the Information Display Hall, with only the Model Display Hall being free.
At night, an animated projection of approximately 32 meters by 11.5 meters will be made on the wall of Tokyo Plaza, giving the original size Gundam a brand new light projection, creating a visual effect of a brand new sensation with the images and light projections.

The giant Gundam outside is cool to see up close. It moves by the hour, so it is recommended to come see it while playing in Odaiba. At that time, fans gather to take photos. Small children were happily taking commemorative photos.
