An Iconic Part of Tokyo Shining in Rainbow Colors
“Rainbow Bridge,” an approximately 800-meter-long suspension bridge, is an iconic part of Tokyo architecture that connects Odaiba and Shibaura.
At night the bridge is beautifully illuminated, and many people visit it to take pictures of one of Tokyo’s most well-known night views.
The bridge has a dual structure: the upper section functions as an expressway, while the lower section is used by a general roadway, the Yurikamome Line, and a walking path.
The walking path is about 1.7 kilometers long and has both a “north route” and “south route” starting on each side of the bridge, and from the top of the bridge you can get a view over Tokyo from all directions. The bridge can be crossed in about 20-30 minutes.
Illuminated bridge is an indispensable night view of Tokyo
