The Odaiba waterfront boasts plenty of attractions for visitors from Japan and overseas, including a replica of the Statue of Liberty, and now, a huge set of Olympic rings.

They also light up.

The colorful 69-ton structure at the Odaiba Marine Park in Tokyo's Minato Ward is 33 meters wide and 15 meters high.

The Tokyo metropolitan government chose the popular sightseeing area for the installation to promote the Tokyo Olympics.

The barge-mounted monument was moved to the waterfront in Tokyo Bay by a tug Jan. 17 from a dockyard in Kanagawa Prefecture that morning.

The rings will be illuminated at night between Jan. 24 and Aug. 9.

A Paralympics monument will be installed at Odaiba between mid-August and Sept. 6.
