Great sunset spot in Tokyo

One of the best sunset spots in all of Tokyo. Even in summer it can be cool and windy, which is a nice break from the heat, but remember a jacket. I sat here for an hour waiting... read more

Definitely one of the things to do when visiting Tokyo, preferably in the evening when all the lights are shining on all the surrounding buildings. Make sure to arrive on time as the walkway closes at 9 PM and no visitors are allowed anymore some time before

If you get the time to walk the bridge or ride the train across do it it's a great way to see the Tokyo bay coast line. Cross to Odaiba and take a beach stroll, a promenade stroll and a look around the many shops. It's great way to spend half a day, have a coffee or lunch.

Morning or night, the Rainbow Bridge in Odaiba, Tokyo, Japan is magnificent! It is an icon by itself!

Tokyo has lots of bridges of all sizes, the rainbow bridge is not exceptional. There is one feature which is kind of fun, there is a train which runs from the fun center (where a Statute of Liberty stands in Tokyo Harbor) to the city. It is a fun ride which offered some nice vistas of the Tokyo skyline. I... More

We would certainly stay here again and would recommend it for anyone looking for a good reasonably priced hotel in Tokyo where hotel prices are high.

This is fun to see at night when the bridge is all lit up. I took the train over which is pricey (340 yen/person/one-way). There is a nice shopping center on the other side with many food choices.

You must go when it is dark, the bridge is in lights that change colours. You have the best view from the beach. Locals like it, there will be a lot of them. There are seats, you can take your food with you while you enjoy the view.

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.
