I have transversed the Tokyo Bay Rainbow Bridge many times on my various business trips to Japan. Fortunately, I am always the passenger and can enjoy the views. The Rainbow Bridge is not quite as iconic as the Golden Gate or Brooklyn Bridges, but it is nearly iconic, certainly in Japan. It might be more on par with the Verrazano... More

This is an impressive structure that is used to access an island with many activities. We didn't see it at night when its meant to be lit up.

While the bridge can be seen from all over the place, from Odaiba to Tokyo Tower it is of course best seen from either a trip across on the transit system or better yet from below on one of the many cruises across the bay. Catch it during the day but make sure you see it in it's full glory... More

On the way from Narita Airport, you will most likely cross the Rainbow Bridge on the way to Tokyo. As you drive towards this bridge at night your eyes will be drawn to the colors. Apparently the colors of the lights are changed seasonally and at holiday times. Do forget to have your camera with you.

Come visit the Rainbow bridge at night at Odaiba! The view is amazing! Before Feb, Odaiba has light decorations and illuminations, which make the area even more spectacular! Recommend take the train and get off at the station by the Diver City Mall. Take picture of the transformer statue. Come around then take pictures with the Statue of Liberty with... More

At first this looks a bit industrial for an attraction but once you get on the bridge it's actually really nice with great views of the city. The bridge leads from Tokyo to the Daiba man-made island.. which is odd considering it's full of massive shopping centers :)

The Rainbow bridge goes from Minato to Odaiba island. It's fun to take it with the monorail but you can also walk on it. You'll have to choose between north side or south side: great views on the bay and Odaiba on the south side (my favorite), but at night prefer the north side to see the amazing city lights.... More

This bridge itself is so beautiful. And watching this illuminated from cruise ride or mono rain over it is amazing. Odaiba sea side Park is usually overcrowded during summer fireworks. During 2015 summer my parents visited me I chanced to ride mono rail though this bridge while intense fireworks are going all around the Tokyo Bay. It is one of... 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.
