The Rainbow bridge - one of Tokyo's famous landmarks - measures 798 meters long and connects the Shiba district with the newly-built Odaiba waterfront development. The bridge supports a railway, an expressway and two separate walkways. The northern walkway offers a view of Tokyo while the southern one overlooks Tokyo Bay and the Odaiba waterfront. The bridge is illuminated at night with 444 solar-powered lamps that change color with the seasons. Walkways open until 9pm in summer, 6pm in winter. Accessible from the Shibaura Futo Station on the Yurikamome line.

  • It's a pretty bridge, nothing really special about it. The best view is from a waterboat, actually. It doesn't have fancy colors or anything and during the day it appears a seemingly innocent bridge. Night, pretty. Day, pass it up. If you happen to be passing it by, then have a look, but honestly don't go out of your way to see the bridge itself; though it leads to some interesting places lik... Read More

  • With respect to the other reviewers, I find the best place to view this bridge is from the deck of the booze cruise leaving from Hammamatsucho. Other that how it looks from the deck of a boat...what can you say...it's a bridge. It goes across the water and cars drive on it. There are lots of pretty lights. But honestly, all the coolest cities know that you aren't really a city without a rockin... Read More

  • I've found that the best place to view the bridge is from the Odaiba side. Walk along the boardwalk back from the station and shopping area to towards the bridge. Follow the beach all the way around to the old battery, go up the stairs and turn right. You'll end up nearly under the bridge, with an excellent view of the city behind it. At night there is almost nobody in the area, so an evening ... Read More

  • Don't take the Rainbow Promenade...

  • I did it. I went through this. It's a 2km journey with the sea below, the barrier on one side and cars, buses, trucks and monorail on the other side and above you. It shake a lot, you have pollution in the air and it's not enjoyable. Definely, I would not recommand this Rainbow promenade ! Take the bus or the monorail to go on the other side, it's safer and better !

  • As there are many sites in Odaiba, it's only natural that you will find a spot to see the Rainbow Bride. I viewed it from the beach but was a little disappointed. With a name of "Rainbow Bridge," I was hoping for some extravagant lights of all colors or at least something resembling a rainbow. It was just a bridge though, of course a nice bridge and fine to look at, but nothing of what I had ex... Read More
