Beppu Tower, Beppu

(1.2/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
A stark example of Japan's unique post-war modernization, Beppu Tower still stands as the city's prime landmark. This 100 m (330 ft) tall former television transmission tower gives visitors a 360-degree view of the area. Built in 1957 and once a technological marvel, the structure shows how architecture of a country can be modern without being westernized. A curious photo exhibition on the 17th floor documents the tower's history, showing images of many Japanese celebrities who visited in the past. Beppu Tower is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Beppu Edition.

  • Or scratched or dirty glass actually sees a beautiful night and I visited doesn't look very out cleanly. Stay 5 minutes and went back immediately! And I do a bit more cleanly because of sights and attractions include the long-awaited.

  • Located in downtown Beppu hot springs. In the corner along the route, so very visible. And speaking of nightscape of Beppu and Beppu Tower is very famous, but when it comes to pretty disappointed that guaranteed! It's so small? Think gazebo. Beppu Tower might look from the outside.

  • This tower is 3 second oldest in Japan. Exhibited photos of construction at that time, you come to Beppu places. Views of nature surrounded by sea and mountains, good
