A suspension bridge linking the city center to Rinkai Fukutoshin (Tokyo Waterfront Secondary City Center). The ocean view from the walkway and the lights that change each season are worth seeing.
Rainbow Bridge is a suspension bridge that opened in 1993, linking Rinkai Fukutoshin (Tokyo Waterfront Secondary City Center) to the city center. It is a double deck composite transportation suspension bridge: On the bottom deck are a walkway, harbor highway, and the track for the New Transit Yurikamome; on the top deck runs the Shuto Expressway No. 11 Daiba Route. The walkway spans 1.7 km from the Shibaura entrance to the Daiba entrance, and offers a view of passenger boats going back and forth on Tokyo Bay, and of the Tokyo Waterfront, while you stroll. When the sun sets, Rainbow Bridge's 444 lights come alive. Lights that change colors from white, green, and coral pink, are the first in the world. The light patterns change depending on the season, day of the week or national holiday: In summer, the lights portray coolness, and in winter, warmth. It is a 5-minute walk from Shibaura-futo Station on the New Transit Yurikamome.
