Oh yea, this bridge was an opportunity for you to pull out your little endurance to walk across to bridge. At the end, you may want to walk down to beneath the bridge to socialize with those local doing the pole fishing with some unique equipment.

To walk the Tokyo Gate Bridge, you enter the walkway by means of a tower located at Wakasu Park in Koto. To get to the park, you can walk from Shin-Kiba train station (GPS claims the distance is 4.7 km one way). You can take a bus from the station to the park too -- Google Map direction routing can provide details. On the bridge, there's a second tower at the far end -- the Ota end -- but it's closed and you cannot leave the bridge there (despite what some signage on the bridge suggests.) So a visit of that far tower is a round trip. Reasons why it might be worth going the full distance to that tower include that, the planes coming in to land at Haneda airport are directly overhead at that tower (at least, the day I was there) and the closest distance (lowest altitude) to observers on the bridge. The bridge is open from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., with entry cut off at 4:30 p.m. (On Fridays and Saturdays, from July 1st to September 30, it's open until 8:00 p.m.) Access is free. I found this trip to the bridge very interesting and I'm glad to have walked it. (But a walk of the Rainbow Bridge after sundown felt much more exciting.)

Tokyo Gate Bridge is not really the sort of place you'd normally want to visit, but at night time when the bridge is lit up it becomes quite beautiful. The interesting thing about this bridge is that planes fly over and around the bridge so you can actually see them flying in low from the left and then turning on the right side of the bridge. If you like photography, and have a tripod, then set your camera exposure to 30 seconds with a small aperture and you get the light trail from the plane's lights curving around behind the bridge.

There is a car park as you reach the bridge which we did not need to pay for. So an interesting place to see a beautifully designed bridge all lit up in the evening time.

The Tokyo Gate bridge across part of Tokyo bay is a modern awkward sort of structure. It has a ungainly looking mid span with a clearance of over fifty metres from the sea below so as to permit large ships to pass below it.
The bridge is not pretty or classical and therefore not much of a tourist attraction but in it's own odd way it is an interesting structure. The only nice sight is from the bridge of a large ship passing below it.
