After a delicious dinner at Jung Sik Dang, Ceddy and I headed to North Seoul Tower.  The observation deck has awesome views of the city.

Rainbow Bridge

Rainbow Bridge. Tokyo, Japan.

Tokyo’s Rainbow Bridge connects Shibaura Pier to Odaiba waterfront development, which is across Tokyo Bay. The pier was lined with restaurants where groups of friends, couples, and a few families could grab dinner and/or drinks after work.

Shibaura Pier is one of the most romantic spots in the city. Couples sat on the boardwalk by the beach and watched the boats move across the bay under Rainbow Bridge.

Originally, Ceddy and I wanted to take one of the water taxis to see the views from the bay. While we were too late to catch one, we got drinks and enjoyed the views from the boardwalk. I even convinced him to take some photos.

Ceddy has a much better sense of balance than me. Tokyo, Japan.

I just stood by the railing (knowing my luck, I would’ve fallen and broken other teeth).

Not classy, just clumsy. Tokyo, Japan.

Rainbow Bridge should be on everyone’s list of sights to see in Tokyo (especially if you’re feeling amorous).

In addition to the observation deck, there’s also a (slightly overpriced) café on the 26th floor.
