“Great nighttime view.”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

If you're heading back to mainland Tokyo after visiting Odaiba, I recommend getting some exercise and walking across the bridge. It's fairly peaceful if you can ignore the cars as there aren't many people who can be bothered to cross it but I would say it's worth it as the view of Tokyo is pretty interesting, especially during the evening/at night. I would make sure you know where you're heading once you get to the other side though as it'll be dark and there aren't really any people to ask for directions to the station from unless you wander around for about 20 minutes.

“Night view is simply stunning...”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

I've had the pleasure of staying at the Nikko Hotel overlooking the rainbow bridge..view room with a balcony to boot
& taking the yurikamome line to Asakusa or Shimbashi station on occasion but this ride just does not do justice until night time...whereby the cruise ships are in living colors which cradles
the bridge and the liveliness outshines the daytime....hence, gives it the name The Rainbow Bridge!
Also, if time permits please do go on a slow cruise to Asakusa through the colorful bridge in red, blue and take your time for some awesome pics.,
Cheers! ,

“Nice for a walk”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

I walked across this from Tokyo to Odaiba. It didn't take too long and it offered nice views of the city.

“Fascinating and an awesome structure”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

At night the Rainbow Bridge is as capitulating as any other landmark in any city or any other well known bridge in the world! It's colours ever changing, hence its name, bring it to life by night & by day it stands as a symbol of power and strength with its double decker carriage, with driverless trains and plenty of cars and buses moving along it 24/7! A must see from the land & the water!

“It's beautiful at night, from this location?”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

It's hard to get a good look at the bridge. Crossing the bridge during the day on the train didn't work. But, my guide took me to the premiere viewing spot. By walking through or enjoying a drink at the Hotel Nikko area at night the Bridge lives up to all expectations. It's is painful to and from, but it is pretty.
