    Well, I stand corrected.

    However it was Episode 26 that had the scene of the flashback of Sora leaving the entrance of "Odaiba Mansion", not 27.

    In that case, that means Jou, "Koh", and "So" technically live in Toei Daiba Ichi-Chōme Apāto 1-Gōtō.

    It is the Odaiba Mansion Sora lived in as TMS said. We (my guide and I) spent a lot of time researching the show itself and other material when making the itinerary that year. The Searea complex is literally near the docks at the beach not far from the subway terminal at Daiba in Minato.

    It was a two-room apartment like Taichi's and Hikari's in Advenure we were allowed to see. With the maintenance fee, the monthly price was very expensive she told us. The one-room apartments there were a little cheaper but it reminds me of New York or Southern California in the bay area in terms of cost of living, not a cheap location to live in. Very beautiful but not really practical to live there. A lot of the people working there like I said commuted to Odaiba from the mainland where the cost of living is much cheaper.

    I did visit the observation deck at the Fuji TV station to answer your question, yes. The guide was a little in awe when we watched the scene in Adventure where War Greymon kicks the ball from the Fuji TV station into Venom Vamdemon with ease because it is huge.

    It is the Venus Fort shopping complex at Palette Town where the Ferris Wheel is so I stand corrected. Been a few years and there is several shopping complexes there. We visited Aqua City also and saw the life-size Gundam robot which was really awesome. Got a ton of pictures of it.

    Japan is an amazing place, we visited several hobby shops in Akihabara and in a more spiritual aspect of the trip, several Shinto temples around Tokyo. As a Digimon Adventure fan, this was a rare once in a life-time experience that I will never forget.

    I did state in a later comment that he was right.

    The Fifth Avenue complex isn't named Searea, just two of the buildings that are owned by one company, STARTS PITAT HOUSE Co., are under the "Searea Odaiba" brand of apartments and are the ones closest to DECKS Tokyo Beach shopping center which is across the street.

    The Official Site of Searea Odaiba only shows two of the buildings of that particular complex as theirs aside from one of the Tomin Towers and Ichi-bangai.

    Tai and Kari live in a building in the center of the complex which is not owned by the company and it's referred to as Tominheim Daiba 5th Avenue Building 4.

    I'm assuming you meant the Yurikamome Daiba station when you said "subway terminal at Daiba in Minato" even though it's not really a subway but an elevated station since the only subway station on the island is the Tokyo Teleport Station of the Rinkai line which is outside of Daiba (as well as Minato City) and in Koto City, closer to Venus Fort.

    The Fifth Avenue complex is actually closer to the Odaiba-Kaihinkoen station on the Yurikamome though.

    I would have loved to see look on your guide's face when you showed that scene.

    The Gundam statue (as well as the Gundam Cafe) are located at Divers City Plaza, not Aqua City.

    I think every Digimon fan should visit this country (particularly the Odaiba area) at least once in their lifetime if possible. It's an experience like no other.

    I was speaking of the Odaiba-Kaihinkoen station yes. I meant specifically we visited Aqua City also, not meaning to indicate the Gundam statue was at Aqua City. We ate at the Gundam café in the Divers City Plaza and it was very crowded let me tell you. Should have worded that better. We visited Divers City Plaza, Aqua City & the Venus Fort shopping complex before riding the Ferris wheel there. Saw the replica of the statue of liberty too on a waling tour of the city.

    Their building is sandwiched in the center of the complex there, why it became evident you can't actually see the Ferris Wheel from their apartment like in the show in real-life. You have a nice view of the other building. But that was 20 years ago when Adventure debuted and I noticed Odaiba even then in 2013 has understandably grown and changed a lot over the years. Digimon sites as they were then are vanishing or being covered up as time moves forward. I was lucky to have been there when a lot of it still existed.

    That's an interesting fact, it actually being the Tominheim Daiba 5th Avenue Building 4. They just referred to it as being apart of the Searea complex when we visited near the docks at Daiba close to the Odaiba-Kaihinkoen station. Anyway, I noticed pretty quickly it faces in the complete opposite direction that I knew from Adventure. A view of the Ferris wheel is what I expected but any view is obstructed.

    The look on his face was fun to watch because he was surprised how strong the Ultimate Digimon were they way War Greymon and Metal Garurumon were tossing the ball around effortlessly. They weren't very big compared to some other gigantic forms like Metal Greymon, and he said Tokyo gets destroyed more by Digimon than Godzilla ever did.

    One of my most memorable experiences was coming to Odaiba from Hikarigaoka and having a teenage Japanese girl on the train fall asleep on my shoulder. She just literally slumped over with her head on my arm. I agree that any fan if possible, should visit here once in their life but I understand for many the cost makes that impossible sadly.

    Funny story: I visited Tokyo again in 2016 and had my Digivice Ver. 15th with me.

    It was almost as if the stars aligned as I just happened to be standing next to the Odaiba ferris wheel the very moment I cleared the game and beat Diablomon.

    I had a similar experience. I carried a few special items with me on that trip, Taichi's Ver. 1 Adventure Digivice, the Tag and Crest of Courage prop that I wore around my neck & my card deck from the Hyper Colosseum. I have an MP3 player loaded with the original Digimon music and as I stood looking out over the bay as the sun sat on that Odaiba Memorial Day, I remember playing 'Butterfly' and was just completely lost in the moment as nostalgia swept over me. I knew it was a once in a lifetime experience that will likely never come again.
