Walking Across the Rainbow Bridge !

Rainbow bridge, the bridge that connects Odaiba (manmade island in Tokyo bay) and mainland Tokyo, exists as one of the symbols in bayside area of this city. Not only the cars and Yurikamome (automated guideway transit) , but also the pedestrians can go across this bridge through its side path. 30 minutes walk of 1.7 km side way will give you incredible view of Tokyo bay.

The trip starts from the foot of the bridge. If you are with a bicycle, you will be provided with a special attachment to the rear tyre of the bike in order to avoid riding on the side path. It is simply because to stop bicycles from speeding. So here, you have to push your bike through 1.7km lol.

Attachment on the rear tyre… We have to push the bike !

 

However, the view from the bridge is of worth walking 1.7km. You will see the gigantic main tower, the old gun battery built back in Edo period, or the container port that imports various products to the capital.
