Rainbow Bridge is named for the tri-colored lights on towers supporting its suspension cables. Solar-powered red, white and green lights are often complemented with blue lighting on supports below the bridge. A rainbow spectrum is created, with muted reflections in the waters of Tokyo Bay.
The 2,618-foot (798-meter) suspension bridge is a major transportation route within Tokyo. The bridge has an expressway that connects Shibaura Pier to the Odaiba waterfront area in Minato. The expressway occupies an upper toll deck, while a lower deck contains a monorail and lanes for ordinary car and truck traffic, and pedestrians.
For one of the most interesting views of the bridge, go to Odaiba, near the Daiba station. A replica of the Statue of Liberty towers above the trees in the foreground. Beyond the statue, the bridge creates a striking image accompanying Tokyo’s skyline. In the background, Tokyo Tower is an eye-catching replica of France’s Eiffel Tower.
Odaiba has many waterfront vantage points and restaurants offering excellent daytime views of Rainbow Bridge. Even more impressive is the post-sunset view as the high-rises and bridge light up. Traveling under the massive structure by water bus provides a unique perspective. Take a trip on the monorail to enjoy the view from its wide windows as you cross the bridge.
Combine some exercise with photography on a walk across the bridge. To the north are views of Tokyo Tower, Skytree and the city skyline. To the south are the beach and Fuji television building of Odaiba. On exceptionally clear days you might see Mount Fuji.
For pedestrians, the bridge is free. It opens at mid-morning and closes overnight, with a pre-sunset close in the winter. Dress warmly for a winter walk! The bridge is also closed on the third Monday of the month, from December 29 to 31, and during bad weather. To access the bridge on the mainland Tokyo side, take a train to the Shibaurafuto station; from there it's 10-minute walk to the bridge. Odaibakaihinkoen station in Odaiba has a connecting walkway to the bridge.
Great location to explore Odaiba. Everything is very close to the hotel and walkable. Many attractions nearby and goid shopping. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful.
The location is great. We arrived at Haneda airport and was able to catch a direct train to Shinagawa station. There are shops and eateries within close proximity. We chose to stay here for ease of access to the Shinkansen.
We really enjoyed our stay here. In fact, it was our favorite hotel that we stayed in while visiting Japan. They even had complimentary champagne for us in celebration of our honeymoon. My only regret is that we didn't stay here for a longer period of time. We will definitely stay here again next ...
No restaurant or 711 nearby hotel, and around is quiet. Btw it is still my choose for next time tokyo trip.
Staff were excellent, hotel bar had a great view, good local area to pick up any essentials and easy access into the station.
First trip to Japan so alot was weighed in on impressions. Thankfully the staff at Villa Fontaine Tamachi did not disappoint. Staff were familiar with simple english and so polite. It was the best service I had thus far. The location of the hotel was close to Odaiba and ginza however its quite a ...
The surrounding plaza was beautiful,clean, green and flower filled with many dining options. The location so far from the city centre and main attractions made commuting each day tiring and expensive.
