The theme day: sister city

Tokyo, Japan
Wikipedia says that Tokyo has eleven sister cities; Beijing in China, Berlin in Germany, Cairo in Egypt, Jakarta in Indonesia, Moscow in Russia, New South Wales in Australia, Paris in France, Rome in Italy, Sao Paulo in Brazil, Seoul in South Korea, and New York in U.S.

It is very hard to pick up only one city from these cities but I choose NY and took the photo of Statue of Liberty at Odaiba, in Tokyo.This statue is presented from France ten years ago as a token of friendship. The monument is not so big as the one in NYC and people cannot go up to the head and only see it from outside.

148 city photo blogs are currently participating in this theme.

Such an iconic image. We are left with no doubt who your sister city is.

Good choice, recognizing both Paris and New York in one shot.
I too have good memories of strolling the boardwalk at Odaiba and eating in the DECKS building overlooking the harbour. Thanks.

Nice shot.

I didn't know New York was a sister city to Tokyo, nor that Tokyo had so many sister cities!

Your site inspired me to start my own daily photo blog of Japan:

I saw the Statue of Liberty in Tokyo too, and from a faraway distance I actually thought that it was the same size as the one from New York!

Did you know that there is a model of the Statue of Liberty on a small island in the Seine River in Paris?

The statue was a gift to the U.S. from France.

It is very interesting to read that France has also given this to Japan!

I remember visiting Odaiba and my Japanese friends thought I would be impressed with this mini Statue of Liberty. The fact that I am not American didn't seem to make a difference to them.

Thanks for the great blog and the pictures!

I was in Tokyo in 2005 but was there in business, so I only had a few days to look around. I remember that I visited the grave of the Samurai's. But I couldn't understand anything about their life and story as there was no English translation available. Maybe you have pictures from there one day!
