Rainbow Bridge - Review
The Rainbow Bridge is a suspension bridge joining Odaiba to the mainland. The bridge is 798 meters long and was completed in 1993.
This bridge is 2 tiered- the upper tier carries an expressway while the lower tier holds an express train! It is an Engineering marvel. There is a walkway provided on the lower level to enjoy a stroll along the bridge. The real magic of the bridge though starts after sundown. The lines holding the bridge up are fitted with lights so when it's dark the bridge is cast in rainbow shades that make the bridge stand-out against the Tokyo skyline. This is where it gains its name from and is a treat to see after sundown.

Rainbow Bridge, Tokyo Reviews
Rainbow Bridge is a big and quite impressive construction but the view from the bridge is the best. If you wanna go and see it and enjoy the view you have to walk into a building and take elevators up each side of the bridge for different views. Bridge closes at 9 pm in the summer and 6 pm in the winter so be aware before you walk all the way here. If you want to ride your bicycle on the bridge that's NOT allowed. They will mount a board with 4 small wheels on the back wheel of your bicycle just to be sure you won't ride the bicycle on the bridge.The breeze and sight were nice but could be better without the fencing. Coming here close to sunset time is really pretty and you get a good view of the city’s tallest and most prominent buildings.
Been there in 2010. Had a wonderful time. I still remember the mesmerizing views of that night. A wonderful place to hang out with friends.

The view is superb from the Odaiba bay! One of the best landscapes in Tokyo. Looks wonderful at night.
Beautiful bridge, especially if you travel in the evening. It makes you feel excited because of its lights, attractive view.
