Travel from behind shinagawa station by local bus and it takes you over the bridge, to a seaside type of area, plenty of shopping and food and out of the busy Tokyo streets for a breather. Fresh sea air

Interesting Technology - the architecture of the bridge. Fascinating is the operation of the metro - no driver, automatically guided by sensors and observation thru cameras. Recommendation: Sit in the front row of the first coach, this is the best photo point. Recommendation: Ride the metro across the bridge at sunset.

I think the best view on a Rainbow Bridge is from Odaiba island boardwalk just by the Statue of Liberty. It totally fantastic view at any time of the day either during the day or at night with nice illumination!

I would say the best place to view the bridge would be in Odaiba and as the sun is setting. We went to look at it and the "Statue of Liberty" there. It was serene and peaceful outside and the sea breeze made it really nice weather wise. Other than that, I wouldn't say it would be a "must do"... More

This bridge is quite long, which is 798m long. Built with a robust construction, and beautify the city. Linking northern Tokyo Bay between Shibaura Pier and the Odaiba waterfront development in Minato.

I recommend to take Yuri metro line to get the splendid view of Rainbow bridge, I wanted to walk as it is possible for pedestrian to walk but due to paucity of time I could not do that Metro ride during day time is more attractive as compare to night

Traveling by Waterfront Line from or to Odaiba, you may try your chance to get a pilot seat in the first carriage. Real pilot seats in the back, so it is usually free but highly appreciated by the travelers. View is simple scenic. Just take or wait for your chance.

A lovely walk for a warm summer Sunday morning. (you walk in the shade) Most shops and attractions on the Island won't open until 11. So it is a good idea to start with the walk over the bridge and arrive right on time on the island. For the best view you have to walk the north side of the... More
