A suspension bridge, the Rainbow Bridge is a popular bridge located in Japan. It crosses “northern Tokyo Bay between Shibaura Pier and the Odaiba waterfront development in Minato, Tokyo”. Constructed from 1987 to 1993, it is 798 metres (2,618 ft) long bridge. The bridge got its name from public consensus. Rainbow Bridge in Tokyo is also referred as "Shuto Expressway No. 11 Daiba Route - Port of Tokyo Connector Bridge".
- The towers that support the bridge are white in color. The idea was that the bridge should harmonize with the central Tokyo’s skyline, which can be viewed from Odaiba.
- There are lamps on the wires that support the bridge. These add overwhelmingly to the beauty of the bridge. The lamps disperse light of three colors namely white, red and green. During night the view is spell bounding. The lamps are lighted with the aid of solar energy accumulated during day.
