Tokyo Gate Bridge, Koto

#259 of 3,864 in Things to do in Tokyo
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.

  • Beautiful truss and looking up from below in the ship. I would do maintenance and cleaning is very unlikely, but drones and stuff in. Cross over by motorbike from watch Hill not so tough??

  • Saw really reminiscent of dinosaurs. Reports are maintained across the bridge. View from the bridge is very nice. Only the sea so windy, skipped the hat, so watch out.

  • It is loved as one of wakasu Seaside Park from the Tokyo Bay landscape. To fish in the sleeve and seems to have enjoyed many fanciers. I enjoyed the walk.

  • This bridge is not made of dinosaurs. Very disappointing.
  • What a structural design. Excellent. Very nice full view of Tokyo city. Even we can see Fuji san during summer season.
  • Not the best, but a great driving route. Free of toll, and it has a great view of tokyo bay. Watch your speed as you may encounter law enforcement more frequently along this road.
  • Great place to hangout, specially in night, you can get view of Tokyo Skyline too
  • Nice bridge..
