Take the monorail and enjoy the views. Cross the bridge on foot and enjoy the views. Walk into a convenience store, get a bento lunch and sit on the beach to enjoy it.

I saw ads of the bridge actually in the airport and the bus driving to my location but seeing it lit up at night was amazing. I wish I brought my camera because the pictures from my phone didn't do it justice. It's worth making the effort to see if you get to Tokyo. The city really is amazing and... More

We were fortunate to be staying in a hotel with a fantastic view of the bridge. (see pics). The walk over the bridge is scenic.. no doubt... but long and hot (in the summer).. worth it for the view.. but you earn it.

The beach front area in front of the Aqua City mall near the Rainbow Bridge is a fun area on the weekends. Grab a sandwhich and sit out by the water to people and dog watch.

The first thing that strikes you about the bridge and the Statue of Liberty nearby is that it looks like New York, but then you look around and you realise your at Tokyo Bay, right next to the amusement arcade.....great day out.

While on vacation in Tokyo Japan, we stayed at the Hilton Odaiba and had a spectacular view of the Rainbow bridge. Since we live in San Francisco, it reminded us of the Bay Bridge at night.

This is a very good way to see the city of Tokyo, from over the bay, walking from Tokyo to Odaiba or the other way around. It's about an hour's walk, and you might want to take a metro train one way unless you are a really keen walker. The bridge is very high up, a little too high if... More

crossed it 4 times to and from a hotel I stayed in Odaiba. This is a bridge thaat links the island with the mainland, and by passing it in the middle path in train (roads for the cars seem outside of the trainrails) it is nothing more than a bridge. I am not entirely sure why this is considered as... More

This is very ordinary bridge until dusk when the lights come on, then it becomes (as the name suggests) an array of changing colours. Best seen from Odibia.

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.
