A beach at a park in Tokyo's Daiba bay area is almost deserted Monday afternoon as the city continued to bake in a heatwave.

I'm not sure what Odaiba is supposed to be. A beach (where swimming is prohibited)? A place to see a replica beach while shopping?

Why not plant a few trees, like Singapore's Sentosa. Oh, and clean up the water for swimming, too.

Heatwave? It rained yesterday and was cloudy.

Strangely enough, the deserted beach with only three people rather looks bleak and not boiling hot at all.

When it comes to near-the-city beach theme, Sydney does it best. At the Circular Quay that by itself is the heart of the bustling city, water is quite clear. If you take a boat, which is city bus equivalent, for a short while, you can find beautiful beaches that you can only find in far-away beaches in Japan. I wonder how Aussies do beaches-by-the-big-city concept so well. Japan sure can learn a lot from them by the look of this rather pathetic Odaiba beach.

As someone hailing from Sydney (Manly, no less), I concur with this statement. Tokyo doesn't have any real beaches...
