The bridge is one of the many things to see at Odaiba. Its perfect for watching the sunset over the sea and taking pictures of the sunset - stunning!

We went to Odaiba in late afternoon and did a little shopping and stayed for dinner. We got a chance to see the bridge during both daytime and nighttime. We like it better at night. You can take some nice photos during your trip to Odaiba.

The impressive TOKYO SKYLINE can be viewed by rail or boat...the skyline is beautiful at night! Often you can travel out and see MT FUJI from the stations beyond the bridge! Tokyo is one of the most beautifully designed cities in the world!

A nice bridge that you will likely see at several points during your time in Tokyo especially if you frequent Odaiba, not worth crossing on foot but some nice pictures can be taken of it when the conditions are right.

Just type Tokyo Urbex Tip : from Shimbashi go to Odaiba, the artificial island in the Bay of Tokyo. Sit 1st row in the 1st car. It is like ghost train. Completely automated. You will cross the beautiful Rainbow Bridge, 756 m long, 100 m high above the Ocean. Better than Dysneyland !

Thw view of the bridge is nice, although didn't see any rainbow lights as in the Internet pictures. Unless you really enjoy looking at bridge for hours, there's nothing else to do. Come, take picture, leave.

if you arrive tokio form narita then in your way to the city (by car) you will have the first view of it, cause you have to go though it to get into the city, it looks a lot like the ones in NYC, and when you go to odaiba you can see it and get the beautifulness of it...... More

Was hugely disappointed - just white lights, a normal looking bridge, none of the red/green that is shown in pictures on google images/wikipedia. Not worth going to.

This is a nice bridge. By day crossing over to Odaiba by train, there are lovely views of Tokyo. If you stay in typical Tokyo and use the busy crowded stations to get around then you can appreciate the sight of water and buildings which actually have gaps between them as very calming. By night there are beautiful lights that... More

Staying in Odaiba / Shiodome / Shinbashi

Neighborhood Profile
Odaiba / Shiodome / Shinbashi
Odaiba is an entertainment hotspot with a giant ferris wheel, concert halls, amusement arcades and lots of shopping. It also boasts Oedo-onsen-monogatari, a hotspring that recreates old Edo-era ambiance and is very popular with foreign visitors. Shiodome has ultra-modern office buildings where you can often find restaurants with a great high-rise view of Tokyo. The neighboring area of Shinbashi is a district of much older commercial buildings and it's a great place to join 'salary men' enjoying a drink and snacks at street stalls under the railway bridges after work.
