The name DECKS was originally derived from the “deck” on a ship. In fact, the DECKS Tokyo Beach amusement complex was designed to take on the appearance of a ship deck to allow visitors to enjoy walking or dining on the waterfront.
Takano advertises a wide range of new and older establishments housed in DECKS, including “bills”, the Odaiba branch of the world-known restaurant from Sydney, and the unique Odaiba Takoyaki Museum.
At Madame Tussauds Tokyo, visitors will be met by a magnificent array of life-size realistic wax models of A-list celebrities.
On June 15, 2012, DECKS Tokyo Beach (Odaiba, Tokyo) opened LEGOLAND® Discovery Center Tokyo, Asia's first and latest establishment launched under the highly reputed visitor attraction brand. Using a total of more than 3 million LEGO® bricks, the new indoor theme park has been designed to create a distinct LEGO® world featuring a variety of attractions, including a 4D Cinema intended to provide a sense of "fourth dimension" and a MINILAND® Tokyo life miniature display. These and other interactive events have been developed to be enjoyed by both children and adults.
DECKS Tokyo Beach is an amusement complex operated by Sumisho Urban Kaihatsu, Co., Ltd. an associated company of Sumitomo Corporation. Since its establishment in 1996, DECKS has developed and introduced entertainment projects across the spectrum with a strong commitment to delivering fun to all age groups. Following LEGOLAND® Discovery Center Tokyo, the urban amusement center plans to launch a range of must-see projects from this summer to next spring.
One major example scheduled as soon as July 14 is the grand opening of the redesigned Tokyo Joypolis, one of Japan's largest indoor theme parks. Employing state-of-the-art digital technology, the new amusement park will create an upgraded magical environment by integrating digital and real elements to enhance the effects of live stage shows and events, as a compelling means to attract throngs of Joypolis fans with fresh thrills and exhilaration. Six days after this on July 20, the opening of Izakaya EXILE will take place, a much-talked-about pub-restaurant project organized by and named after the popular Japanese dancing group EXILE. Already in its fourth year, this annual beer garden will take place in an outdoor purpose-built facility within the waterfront DECKS complex for a limited time only, offering a menu of original recipes developed by the group members as well as a superior view of Tokyo Bay. The next planned highlight will be the launch of Madame Tussauds Tokyo, expected to take place in the spring of 2013. Visitors to the newest site of this world-renowned wax attraction will be met by more than 60 full-size wax figures of famous personalities from Japan and overseas, and will be encouraged to get up close and personal to mingle and pose for photos with their idol stars or heroes.
"People come to Odaiba seeking to have a fun time in addition to the pleasure of shopping and dining," said Toshihiko Takano, Executive Managing Director of Sumisho Urban Kaihatsu. "In order to meet this expectation, DECKS focuses on offering quality entertainment opportunities. We will work to further develop DECKS to deliver a more fun entertainment experience to a greater number of people," he added.
