Palette town (?????????????帥????, sometimes mistranslated to pallet town) is a huge complex facility containing attractive amusement spots, stores and restaurants.

Palette Town

It???s extremely popular because you can look down at the sea and the skyscrapers of Tokyo at the same time. You can enjoy a panoramic view of the coast from Haneda down to the Boso Hanto Peninsula. You can also see Mt. Fuji on a fine winters day. Its huge Ferris wheel can also be seen all across Odaiba signalling to prospective visitors that Palette town is a fun and interesting place to be.

Palette town is made up of several attractions with a large shopping centre known as the Venus Fort (??眼?c?若????鴻??????若??), a women’s theme park filled with fashion, beauty, and many other items of interest. Venus Fort was first opened in 1999 and designed to look like 17th century Europe, there is even a staged sky on the roof that transforms from day to night every few hours.

The interesting thing about Sun Walk is that it features a lot of shops catering to the pet lover. One can get a makeover done for your pet at a pet hairdresser, stop for a feed at a pet friendly Dog Caf辿. If you don???t have a pet and feel you are missing out, there are pets on hire by the hour so you too can join in the pet pampering. It does sound odd but hiring a dog is becoming increasingly popular with the locals that may not have a big apartment and not much room to have pets.

Other attractions that make up Palette town include the Toyota Mega Web technology showcase, Toyota???s self-proclaimed car theme park.
