On Day 5, we moved ourselves to an Airbnb in Odaiba.

It was time, for Comiket.

For those who donÔÇÖt know, Comiket is a massive comic market that takes place in Odaiba at Tokyo Big Sight twice a year.

This is Tokyo Big Sight.

First, though, we had to get there.

Like, I know that places are open late, but 25:00?

IÔÇÖm pretty sure thatÔÇÖs not a time.

Showing up, we did see this great Madoka display, apparently in collaboration with LawsonÔÇÖs, a convenience store in Japan.

Advertisement

This person had set up a tiny table on their table with figures of characters holding the stuff they were selling!

Advertisement

I had no idea what to make of this person in the Haruhi costume. Kind of creepy.

Advertisement

Saw a couple of cosplayers that day. This person was doing a cosplay of the character Nagisa Momoe from Madoka.

Advertisement

They tried.

and this cosplay of Shinobu from Monogatari.

Advertisement

That evening though, we walked a bit to a life-size Gundam.

Advertisement

My friend is quite short, in comparison. But then again, so is everyone.

That evening, we went to the Toyota Museum at Mega Web, those pictures are at the bottom of the article.

Advertisement

We did see a giant ferris wheel, though. Lit up at night it was pretty cool, So bright it reflected on the building across the way.

Advertisement

At this point, we really didnÔÇÖt have any other plans, so it was time to hit the parking lots and see what sort of cool cars were out!

This van was pretty ridiculous. that door on the side opened gullwing style.

Advertisement

It was pretty cool getting some pictures of this kei car with the ferris wheel reflecting on it.

Advertisement

Advertisement

This Honda Accord Isuzu was interesting, too.

Advertisement

Some more cool cars that evening.

Advertisement

Advertisement

This bridge to the train station was gorgeous

Advertisement

And here we have the laziest Itasha ever:

Advertisement

Advertisement

This guy got himself a great license plate

Advertisement

The owner of this car was also excited that we liked it. We started taking pictures of it...

Advertisement

But it was even cooler lit up.

Advertisement

I donÔÇÖt actually know most of the designs from these vehicles, but this van was also pretty awesome.

Advertisement

This was really sharpie!

This Suzuki Alto featuring Ritsu Tanaka from K-ON! was pretty cool

Advertisement

Messing around with aperture settings and such, got my friend this great picture of these taxis.

Advertisement

On the way back to the Airbnb, spotted this sweet Mini Bike

Advertisement

Day 2 of Comiket:

This R34 was insane, but couldnÔÇÖt get a good closeup.

Advertisement

In case you didnÔÇÖt think I was serious about Comiket being massive, I got in line at around 8:30AM, and the line already looked like this:

Advertisement

and I wasnÔÇÖt in the back of it for very long.
The event opened at 10AM. It was incredibly impressive how quickly they moved us all into the event hall. All however-many-of-us there were all got in by 10:45.

This person had an arcade set up for their figmas.

Advertisement

And someone cosplaying Cirno from Touhou!

Advertisement

This BMW was pretty low.

Advertisement

I figured Oppo would require seeing this:

Advertisement

There was a cosplay event on Day 2. It was pretty impressive.

We went back to that parking lot the second night.

Advertisement

Minis are awesome.

Advertisement

Dekotora. No more description necessary.

Advertisement

The Colt is a pretty cool car, shame we didnÔÇÖt get it here.

Advertisement

The Multipla was not a cool car, and this one was covered in Love Live, which made it pretty trash.

Advertisement

The Toyota Will Cypha is very strange.

Advertisement

This Patrol was TALL.

Paging Takuro Spirit, Takuro Spirit to the white courtesy telephone.

Advertisement

Even kei vans can be campers, but man, tight quarters.

Advertisement

Definitely low

Advertisement

And Now, The Toyota Museum at Mega Web:

Advertisement

ItÔÇÖs too bad Toyota doesnÔÇÖt offer this color here.

Advertisement

Selling beer and shaved ice out of a trailer attached to a Merc wagon.
This doesnÔÇÖt seem that safe.

Advertisement

Awesome central exhaust!
On a Prius?

Definitely more to come! Stay tuned for Part 6: Mountains of and Curry!
