The Rainbow Bridge

The Rainbow Bridge

Spanning Tokyo Bay to connect Odaiba Island with the mainland, the Rainbow Bridge serves trains, cars and pedestrians along its 800-meter length. We crossed the bridge frequently with the Yurikamome Monorail, but decided to walk across on one our final days in Tokyo.

Rainbow Bridge Tokyo

“A Stroll Across the Rainbow Bridge” sounds delightful, but the reality isn’t terribly charming. There’s a broad pedestrian walkway, but you’re never far away from the roaring traffic, consisting mostly of semi-trucks that shake the entire structure as they rumble past. The smell of exhaust is nauseating and the noise is nearly unbearable. But the view of the Tokyo skyline, visible if you walk along the northern side of the bridge, almost makes up for it.

    Hello Guys, could you explain the purpose of the small wheeled planks for the bike wheels. I can’t understand what their use can be. Thank you.

      They are for bikers. You are not allowed to bike over the bridge. So everyone showing up with a bike is forced to put these wheels on, to prevent you to hop onto the bike and ride it when nobody is watching.
