I was kind of torn between the South and North route. I would have gotten a pretty nice late afternoon / evening sky with a setting sun along the South route, but the North route allowed me to get some good pictures of the bridge itself.

Ran into numerous joggers while I was crossing the bridge. The running route was approximately 1.5km long, if I recall correctly. Regardless, I think it would be an enjoyable run along the bridge, with the presence of sea breeze and a breathtaking view of the skyline of Tokyo Bay.

That track in the middle is for the monorail that I had rode on to the train station in my previous post, the beginning of my journey back to my residence on foot.

The bridge itself has a few levels. The level I’m on and the one above shown here are highways for vehicles.

Was late in the afternoon when I left the bridge premises.

View Along The Rainbow Bridge

The very reason why I chose the North Route.

The walk across Tokyo Rainbow Bridge was a very enjoyable and eye-opening experience. Despite feeling a little fatigued after walking for a couple of hours before that, I’d say that this was worth the pain I felt in my feet as I was too stubborn to take a rest somewhere. Stay tuned for my next and final post on this particular trip to Japan!
