Odaiba Statue of Liberty
Height 11 m, weight 9 t, this statue made of bronze was approved for the creation of “Statue of Liberty statue replica” from France, produced by the Rikkai sub-central core development council, donated to Tokyo Metropolitan Government. It was reproduced in the French Coubertin Foundry.
The French Statue of Liberty made in France in 1889 was placed in Odaiba from April 1998 to January 1999 as a symbol of the Japan-France friendship.
It was her first exhibition abroad. The statue was so popular that people wanted to have their own as her return date approached. The present statue is a replica created in 1999 with official permission from the city of Paris and was unveiled on December 22, 2000. It is 12.25 meters in height from the pedestal to the top and weighs 9 tons. The best spot to take its photos is the promenade called Skywalk, which connects the Odaiba Marine Park and the Symbol Promenade Park. You can see the statue up close from there. It is a three-minute walk from the Yurikamome Line Odaiba-Kaihinkoen Station or Daiba Station and, alternatively, a seven-minute walk from the Rinkai Line Tokyo Teleport Station.
