This bridge really stands out and you can actually take the train under it to get to the convention center and other stuff on the islands

Best viewed from the Decks Tokyo Beach, beautiful during the day and amazing at night. The bridge caters to car and train traffic and an icon of Japanese engineering prowess. A must visit for everyone visiting Tokyo.

Driving around Tokyo is one of life's true pleasures, especially when you see Rainbow Bridge at nightfall. Awesome.

The Japanese don't think too highly of Odaiba - the artificial islands in the bay of Tokyo and the Rainbow Bridge is not more than a nice looking view to them. Admittedly, without the colourful lights, this would be nithing. But it's still worth taking the train over the bridge and enjoying the relatively quietness from the other side while... More

Take the monorail to Odaiba to admire the night view. You won't regret it. I was awestruck by its futuristic cityscape a decade ago, and am still find it fascinating.

My 11 year old LOVED taking the train over the bridge to Odaiba. He had seen it in the distance from our hotel room on our last visit and we were headed to Odaiba on the Yurikamome train line. We had no idea how much fun it would be. You will see the bridge and then take a BIG LOOP... More

You could be in San Francisco but it's lit up and beautiful and the view from the river boat is a must. What a fantastic piece of architecture. Nice to sit on the banks and see the changing colours. We came from diver city back to Tokyo on the boat, lovely view and peaceful.

My mom, myself, and my friend walked across this bridge like two or three times. It was really fun, but it did take a while, so be prepared to wear comfortable shoes (this is obvious though). The view is so beautiful, see that you can view Odaiba Beach and other attractions/places from the bridge. Make sure to walk on the... More

Staying in Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi

Neighborhood Profile
Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's also a downtown area with shops that were founded over a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza. It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels, world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular with anyone looking for a night out.
