Announced awhile back formally, but with the date about 2 months away, it was worth a mention that the Daikanransha ferris wheel closes on August 31st, 2022.
The Daikanransha featured a decent bit in various Digimon Adventure media (and cameoing in a few other parts of the franchise).
It was built as part of the Palette Town shopping/entertainment complex in Odaiba. It opened in 1999, the same year the Digimon anime began, and at the time of it opening it was the tallest ferris wheel in the world.
It's closure appears to be part of urban redevelopment, with it appearing the plan is to build an arena.
It joins various other things that have connections to the franchise that have closed in recent years, such as the onsen the characters visited in tri., along with the chain of Ani-On Station chain that featured a number of Digimon music cafe events.
Thanks to VirtualBaseinDW for the heads up.
