Categories: Theme Parks, Water & Amusement Parks
Explore one of Japan's favorite fictional universes during a trip to Gundam Front Tokyo, a museum dedicated to the Mobile Suit Gundam anime saga. The full-size, 18 m (59 ft) statue of a Gundam robot that stands outside the museum represents one of the main attractions, with visitors keen to get photos with it. Head up to the museum to see a number of exhibits regarding the franchise's creation, story, characters, and cultural significance, with an emphasis on interaction, video clips, and more life-size robotic photo opportunities. Even if you're not a fan, the enthusiasm with which the whole place has been put together--and the fanaticism it inspires--will certainly leave an impression, and perhaps inspire a few purchases at the extensive onsite gift shop.

To pay tribute to this celebrity of Japanese animation in Tokyo have created a 1:1 scale replica of Gundam RX-78-2 which can be admired at the entrance to the Diver City. This impressive Mobile Suit high 18 metres was built in 2009 and placed at the entrance of the Diver City permanently in 2012 where, at regular intervals, comes alive to light, animate and emit smoke. On the seventh floor of the Diver City you can also access the museum dedicated to Gundam series at a cost of 1000 Yen that will entitle you to attend a full 3D projection of a movie in which you will find yourself aboard the Mobile Suit. Inside the Museum, besides seeing scale reproductions of the pilots and some details of the Gundam, you can also buy souvenirs and models of the various Mobile Suit Gundam series manufactured from 1979 to the present. Whether or not fans, lovers of manga or anime can't leave from Tokyo without stopping to admire the reproduction of the Gundam, just to see the passion that the people of the rising sun to this kind of art.show original
I must admit this may have been one of the coolest things I saw in Tokyo. I never saw Gundam as they had Voltron and Transformers on tv daily after school, as well as my favorite Robotech in the early... read more »

Even if you're not into gundam you have to admire the scale and the detail on yhis 1/1 scale mecha. I coild watch it for an hour if not for the time pressure. I love the effort they put to make it feel real and a prop. Have to come again. There's a theme park i think...
It's okay. If you like fundamental it's good. There is only so much gundam one can like. The statue moves on a schedule and is underwhelming. Good to kill a couple hours.
A must for a Gundam fan. You can spend hours looking for that specific any Gundam related. Don't forget to visit the Gundam museum in the mall.
Gundam Front is a nice way to spend a few hours, not only if you like Gundam or want to see the spectacle of a giant robot statue, but also if you love to shop. Gundam Front is situated next to Diver City, one large mall, and very near Venus Fort, another large mall. The awesome names are also a plus. "Where'd you go today?" "Oh, you know. I stopped by Gundam Front then hit Venus Fort on the bay." Guys, It's a great date spot. Plenty of restaurants and shopping plus you can secretly nerd-out at Gundam Front, or "take a short cut" through the car museum to get into the main Venus Fort building.
Gundam fan or not, its truly a manmade sight to feast your eyes or camera's on.
