From Jonanjima park (blue mark on the left) we biked under the tunnel to an island which doesn't appear to have a name, but it's is a waste disposal / power generation plant. (and I am 99% sure the site of Umi no Mori... though I wonder how they get their mail at the moment....
(The links below are quite interesting.) From there we went to blue marker on the right, Wakasu Keihin Koen. It's a relatively new park that allows overnight camping (for a fee) and is at the eastern end of Tokyo Gate Bridge. The Gate bridge opened a little over a year ago with relatively little fanfare.
I guess as more landfill islands are created, more bridges are going to need to be built... reducing the landfill would seem like a good option, though if there are enough artificial islands in the Bay, Tokyo might be able
develop power creation subsistence...

|Wind farms - TEPCO's not all about spinning of the power generation to the|
regions. I'd like to see them put a nuclear facility here..better still, next to the Diet.
It might force some responsible thinking.
|I can sympathise with this sign and its spelling - it took me ages to work|
out how to spell Disney in Japanese letters & it still confuses me.
|Looking north from the pylon (dirty glass). Central Tokyo's industrial|
heartland. - all on reclaimed land.
|The pylon - we didn't walk the whole way across the bridge & back|
If the weather had been clearer, I might have been tempted.
