Must visit during night, a driver over the bridge is enough to get a feel of the beautiful views around. I do not think you can walk around the bridge but only drive over it. There are nice places around to stop in the bay area.

Very good at night, when it is illuminated. Small, colourful boats tend to pass by, making it a good visual experience.

No. It's not a tourist attraction on its own but If you're going to spend time in Odaiba, you'll be crossing the bridge anyways. Yes, it's nicely lit up at night but...it's tokyo... so what isn't lit up at night? Worth a few photos perhaps but not a few hours.

Best way to view Tokyo bay and Odaiba area !! By far, the best way to see Tokyo's view from above. The YURIKAMOME train ride is a MUST, for people who visit Tokyo. You will enjoy every minute of it.

Our tour brought us to Toyko (from Tateyama Kurobe). We stopped to view the “Rainbow Bridge” + replica “Statue of Liberty” + “Odaiba” – artificial island + Fuji TV Studio Building. Our guide told us that the bridge will be lighted-up with 7 colours at night. Thus, is called the “Rainbow Bridge”. Well, we were there during the day …….... More

For several times a year, this bridge is lit up with rainbow colors. It looks amazing when this happens. Still pretty to look at at any other time as well.

Rainbow Bridge connects to Odaiba. Served by monorail Yurikamone over Tokyo Bay and Sumida River. On Odaiba there is a Shuttle bus free of charge to take you to museums and places of interest. Try your car of choice at Toyota

This is obviously an amazing piece of architecture, however, one would not come to Tokyo just to see this bridge. We took the subway across it on our trip to Odaiba, and that was really cool, but as a destination on its own, I am not so sure.

I was recommended to visit the Rainbow Bridge as it was a Tokyo icon. I walked down to Shinagawa watefront which c=gave a greta view of the whole bridge in the distance. It is an impressive structure but it is after all only a bridge which is lit at night. I think there are far more impressive things to see... More
