Place of Worship
“A temple most famous as the resting place of the 47 Ronin, a famous group of ronin (master-less samurai) who banded together to avenge their unfairly slain master. Having obtained the head of the offender, they brought it to this very temple and then turned themselves in to the authorities; they were condemned to commit seppuku aka ritual suicide, like their master, rather than being executed like common criminals. The story is told in Chushingura, the best-known of all Kabuki plays. History aside, the temple isn't much to look at, but the small museum has artifacts from the event and after, including wooden statues of all the ronin, the banner that the ronin posted during their raid, origin”

Bridge
“Rainbow Bridge / レインボーブリッジ Opened to traffic in 1993, the bridge over the Port of Tokyo is called the Rainbow Bridge and looks like rainbow as the name suggests. The 1.7 kilometers promenade walk connecting Shibaura Wharf and Odaiba waterfront area can be walked on. It takes about half an hour to cross the whole bridge. The two routes, north route and south route, provide different sceneries, but the south route is recommended if you only plan to walk one way. The vision from the bridge is too beautiful to miss especially during the night illumination as the illumination color changes depending on events and even on days and hours for viewers to enjoy the outstanding time of the day.”
