Odaiba and The Rainbow Bridge

The Rainbow Bridge and Odaiba caught the attention of Godzilla fans through Godzilla x Megaguirus in 2000.

In the movie, Godzilla battles the giant dragonfly Megaguirus in Odaiba. Aqua City, the Fuji TV Building and the Rainbow Bridge were prominently featured.

Savvy Tokyo has an article on the Rainbow Bridge and Odaiba that should be useful if one decides to pay a visit there while in Tokyo.

They begin with:
Tokyo is a city of bridges, with the Sumida River alone being home to 26 bridges along its 27-kilometer course. But perhaps the most dramatic of the city’s bridges is the Rainbow Bridge, a conduit into and out of the city, especially for those headed to Narita and beyond by bus or car and for day trippers to the island of Odaiba. 
At only 798 meters in length, the Rainbow Bridge is not a great workout for the dedicated walker. However, it is an interesting and accessible wander for both locals and tourists alike.
