So named because of its colorful lights, Rainbow Bridge spans the bay from Shibaura Wharf to Odaiba, one of Tokyo's premier wining and dining areas. Comprising eight traffic lanes and two railways, the bridge also has a pedestrian walkway and observation towers. Opened in 1993, the suspension bridge is 918 meters long with a distance of 570 meters between the two towers. Another way to see this spectacular bridge would be to travel over it on the Yurikamome monorail line departing from Shimbashi or take a cruise boat upriver from Hinode Pier to Asakusa.
Rainbow Bridge is not worth a day trip. It is better to be seen from the observation tower at Tokyo Tower rather than the subway journey all the way to Shinjuko. It is a must for all the archetech* people out there but its just a bridge, and is better to been seen at night from the Tower as its all lit up.
