The Best Places to See the Rainbow Fireworks

Every year, many the locals and tourists come to visit Odaiba. It would be really a shame if there are too many people gathering at the same spot and you can’t see the beautiful fireworks well. Here are some nice places to see the fireworks that only local people know.

The first place is Tastumi Sakura Bridge by Tatsumi station. Only known among the locals means that fewer people will be there even during the fireworks.

Another place is the observation platform of Ariake sports center, where you can see the rainbow bridge as well as the fireworks. You can rest on the benches and enjoy your special moment there. Also, there is a free relaxation room, where you can take a rest after a long walk.

The third place that local people suggest is around the Flame of Liberty. There is a gold object called the Flame of Liberty on a road which connects Odaiba Statue of Liberty and Teremu center. There are no tall buildings around here so you can see the fireworks clearly.

One more place is around Shinagawa station. It is on the opposite side of the sea, but you can enjoy the collaboration of Rainbow Bridge and the fireworks.
The last place that the locals recommend is the north side of Shiokaze Park. It is close to the reserved seats so you can expect that lots of people will be there. However, this is the best place if you want to experience the wonderful collaboration of music and fireworks!
