A Marsh in Odaiba

Tucked behind a Tokyo Telecom Center Station on the Yurikamome Line (that incredibly expensive yet scenic automated railway hat runs through the Odaiba area of Tokyo) is the unlikeliest of things -- a park.

While Odaiba has no shortage of recreational areas, most of the public parks consist of generous concrete paths alongside Tokyo Bay. The view is wonderful, but there's not much in the way of nature.

This park was a lovely surprise because it was in a section of Odaiba that wouldn't be particularly appealing to visitors. Because of this, ducks had claimed it as their own. I hope there are baby ducks in the spring.
