To walk the Tokyo Gate Bridge, you enter the walkway by means of a tower located at Wakasu Park in Koto. To get to the park, you can walk from Shin-Kiba train station (GPS claims the distance is 4.7 km one way). You can take a bus from the station to the park too -- Google Map direction routing can provide details. On the bridge, there's a second tower at the far end -- the Ota end -- but it's closed and you cannot leave the bridge there (despite what some signage on the bridge suggests.) So a visit of that far tower is a round trip. Reasons why it might be worth going the full distance to that tower include that, the planes coming in to land at Haneda airport are directly overhead at that tower (at least, the day I was there) and the closest distance (lowest altitude) to observers on the bridge. The bridge is open from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., with entry cut off at 4:30 p.m. (On Fridays and Saturdays, from July 1st to September 30, it's open until 8:00 p.m.) Access is free. I found this trip to the bridge very interesting and I'm glad to have walked it. (But a walk of the Rainbow Bridge after sundown felt much more exciting.)

Tokyo Gate Bridge is not really the sort of place you'd normally want to visit, but at night time when the bridge is lit up it becomes quite beautiful. The interesting thing about this bridge is that planes fly over and around the bridge so you can actually see them flying in low from the left and then turning on the right side of the bridge. If you like photography, and have a tripod, then set your camera exposure to 30 seconds with a small aperture and you get the light trail from the plane's lights curving around behind the bridge.

There is a car park as you reach the bridge which we did not need to pay for. So an interesting place to see a beautifully designed bridge all lit up in the evening time.

The Tokyo gate bridge , also known as the dinosaur bridge because of its unique structure. Located in Wakasu, Koto ward. Accessible from the Shin-Kiba station using public bus. The bridge is uniquely designed to allow large ships pass under, entering the industrial areas surrounding the region.
The bridge is illuminated in white and blue during the evening and provides a splendid view. One can view the airplanes flying over the bridge while approaching to land at Haneda Airport. One can walk across the bridge as well but there is a timing for the same ( 10 AM to 5 PM). Access if free. Being open, the location is very windy but a great opportunity for photographers.

Oh yea, this bridge was an opportunity for you to pull out your little endurance to walk across to bridge. At the end, you may want to walk down to beneath the bridge to socialize with those local doing the pole fishing with some unique equipment.

My wife and I visited the bridge today and were a bit underwhelmed. The bridge itself is quite impressive but the area surrounding it is very industrial. The most prominent landmark you can see from the bridge is a garbage processing facility :(

We went on an overcast day sadly and I imagine it would have been better with the sun shining. We don't regret going but there are certainly better ways to spent your time in Tokyo.

IMPORTANT TO NOTE: There is nothing at the end of the bridge except a roped off exit. You can only walk there and back. The bridge closes at 17:00. We were almost locked out by a malfunctioning door at 16:45. We'd have been trapped on the bridge if not for a kindly man on the other side of the doors. Be mindful that the entrance to the bridge is also the exit.

Also known as the dinosaur bridge, the Tokyo gate bridge on tokyo bay is a cantilever bridge which connects artificial islands of Wakasu and Chubo along the highway in the region.
The bridge is located close to the Haneda airport and allows large ships to pass underneath. The best time to visit is during the evening hours when the bridge is superbly illuminated. The area along the bridge offers a great fishing experience to many locals.

Just a bridge in the Tokyo bay area, which looks interesting when seen from a distance due to the architecture, but otherwise nothing special. Not as big or prominent as Rainbow Bridge and easily missed if you don't look for it when up high in Odaiba or a tower with views elsewhere in the city.

Taxi driver explained the significance of the bridge as we came in from the Narita Airport. He told us it was lit up at night and that it was a Japanese achievement.

The Tokyo Gate bridge across part of Tokyo bay is a modern awkward sort of structure. It has a ungainly looking mid span with a clearance of over fifty metres from the sea below so as to permit large ships to pass below it.
The bridge is not pretty or classical and therefore not much of a tourist attraction but in it's own odd way it is an interesting structure. The only nice sight is from the bridge of a large ship passing below it.
