One of the best skyline views of Tokyo and the Rainbow bridge can be seen from the Odaiba island, especially in the evening. As soon as one exits the Yurikamome elevated line at the Odaiba Kaihinkoen Station follow the signs for the Decks Mall. From there one can find the best views of the bridge.

Took the monorail that went on the Rainbow Bridge to go to Odaiba. Had a pretty good view of Tokyo Bay and the surroundings. Before reaching the Rainbow Bridge, the monorail took a long loop that showed some pretty good angles of the bridge if you're a photo enthusiast.

My group crossed on this bridge multiple times and we were all awe struck.. the guide mentioned about the bridge being ''romantically associated'' which i tried really hard to understand but i guess i missed out on the little extra info sessions.. i wished to see it during night though so i could see the lights. but the view from...

Whilst you can enjoy the view of the bridge any time of the day, I recommend seeing the bridge from the Odaiba Seaside Park at night to see it light up (and get a chunk of tokyo sky buildings in the background)

We had great views from Odaiba Island. Modern and beautiful bridge. Nice lightning in green tones. I suggest visiting at night.

Children stared in awesome beauty of the view of the rainbow bridge. But it is not in rainbow colours. From my point of view, the bridge provided a romantic side of Tokyo. Worth the trip to take in the sight of the bridge.

Tokyo is a huge city but the best skyline views are from across the water in Odaiba, looking back at the city behind the bridge. It's not an architecture or engineering marvel, in fact it's not even pretty, but it's nice at night when lit up and is iconic of Tokyo. Didn't walk across because I didn't have time to... More

We went to the Rainbow Bridge around 3pm and waited for the sun to set.....we were not disappointed. Large crowds had assembled which created a slight eerie atmosphere as the darkness settled in. Loved it!! The bridge seen from the beach area is a great view. Don't miss it!!

My friend lived across the bridge and I was lucky enough to be able to always lounge overlooking this. So far its still the most beautiful city and view I have ever been to.

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.
