Although it is called the Rainbow Bridge, the bridge connecting the northern shores of Tokyo Bay with the Odaiba island is, during the day, white colored - the painting was carefully selected to harmonize with the surrounding environment. But by night, this solar powered bridge is indeed lit like a rainbow… Seen from a side, the predominant color is a dazzling green, but if you cross the bridge, you will see the supporting wires colored in red, white and green.
The lighting was designed by one of Japan’s most famous designers, Motoko Ishii, who also designed the lights for Tokyo Tower, Senso-ji Temple, Tokyo Station, Roppongi Hills Mori Tower and Yebisu Garden Place.
