Rainbow Bridge Sunset

Posted in Places by tokyobling on January 19, 2015

I often get asked where to go and what to do by tourists and visitors to Tokyo and one of my standard answers is always “walk across the Rainbow Bridge, preferably at or near sunset”. It might be a little complicated to find the access point near Tamachi Station but not impossible, and no problem at all if you have a smartphone. The better way if you are afraid of getting lost on the way to the bridge is to start the walk from the Odaiba side, and then you can deal with getting lost at your leisure, after having finished the purpose of the walk with not time pressure. I took these just as the sun was setting, on that short walk between Odaiba beach and the bridge.

    These shots are so gorgeous, I just added another link to my Rainbow Bridge post to steer people over here! I think your photos do a much better job of convincing people to take this great walk than mine do. (笑)

      Thank you! But actually the two photos on the bridge itself are from the South Side…! These (and most other on my blog) are from the North Side: https://tokyobling.wordpress.com/2014/06/16/tokyo-bay-sunset/

        I figured! But I beat you to it – that link is already there, to help people choose which side to walk! I’m not keeping score, but I bet more people choose your side than mine! ^^;;

          Haha… I don’t know, it so much depends on the weather and the sunset. On daytime walks the north side wins every time I think, during sunsets or mornings though, the south can be better!
