Also it was a little rainy that day, so it wasn't clear, but still a great view.
In the area were some shopping malls, like Venus Fort, which is a Venice themed shopping mall. Right next to the ferris wheel is a huge game area, called Tokyo Big Sight. This thing was 4 stories of fun and is open 24/7. Everything from UFO catchers to bowling to karaoke. The bottom floor was the largest, it was just massive with video games, photo booths and UFO catchers.
There was also Megaweb, which is Toyota's exhibition hall. They had a number of cars on display, and had some driving simulators that you could use.
