Tokyo Gate Bridge, Koto
(3.9/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
Behold spectactular views across the city from Tokyo Gate Bridge, a magnificent feat of engineering that traverses Tokyo Bay in a great sweeping curve. Nicknamed "Dinosaur Bridge" owing to its design reminicent of two titanic beasts facing off, the bridge spans 2,618 m (8,589 ft) and took around a decade to complete. From this vantage point, 87.8 m (288 ft) high, you can watch shipping traffic sail beneath your feet, as well as great aeroplanes descending to land at the city's airport (the bridge's height was restricted to 100 m (328 ft) for this very reason). Consider bringing along some binoculars on your walk, to make the most of the endless detail of the dramatic cityscape.
