#242 of 3,862 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.

  • 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.

  • It's no speed limit 60 km in a relaxed environment. I think it's worse, with plenty of traffic police administration. My housing area is where the shortcuts just by this bridge. Not going through my own, but the car became less sure. Only when you shouldn't be having to bypass the congested Gulf line when going to Haneda Airport?

  • Have looked at several times from within the time left from Haneda Airport, but this time on the other side from starting.. Up-close with the unique shape is better seen. But when I went to Shin-Kiba on the way stopped arriving from the station. Nice was returned by bus to Shin-Kiba station, public transportation isn't hard to go.

  • 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..

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
