What people are saying about Rainbow Bridge, Tokyo

Overall rating

4.5 / 5

based on 84 reviews

It was a 10 min drive from the New Sanno and easy to find via Google maps. We celebrated my husband’s birthday, and what made it extra special was the singing of happy birthday by a staff member and the thoughtful gift. I just emailed the guide via email to let him/her know that we were celebrating my husband’s birthday in advance.My husband and I loved the food (variety of delicious sashimi, tempura, and other traditional Japanese food). My kids didn’t eat much of the food because they are picky eaters, but they still LOVED the experience and rated it one of their top places in Japan. They especially loved going to the boat deck during the dinner cruise and enjoy the fresh breeze and views. There was a time the boat stopped near the sky tree to take pictures, and there were many opportunities to take pictures with our family with the rainbow bridge and the city at night. The breathtaking night views were amazing to capture a wonderful experience of Tokyo. My whole family had a blast!

From start to finish, this was an exceptional experience. The food was amazing, the setting lovely, the other guests and the staff friendly and the alcohol plentiful. I would have no hesitation in highly recommending this activity.

Impeccable interior setting of the barge; excellent all-you-can-eat dinner with alcohol; attentive waiters; nice ride with explanations in Tokyo Bay.

It really is the best way to see beauty of the city. All the major bridges landmarks lit against nights sky paired with Japanese cuisine.

It was a worth it activity. We celebrated birthday of our kid on board. The staff offered a cake and a gift. Awesome. Full of fun.
