Gundam Front TokyoFree: All time

Gundam Front Tokyo is a theme park based on the popular anime series “Mobile Suit Gundam.” It was opened in 2012 and is located on the seventh floor of a shopping complex, DiverCity Tokyo Plaza in man-made island of Odaiba. While most of the features in the theme park charge admission fee, there are a few sections which are free to access. Outside the DiverCity building, there is a 1/1 scale model of the giant Gundam bot.

The entrance of the Gundam Front Tokyo features a massive image of Gundam floating in space. And in the Gunpla section, find over 1,000 kinds of Gundam plastic models manufactured since 1980.
