Beppu Tower, Beppu
(1.2/5 based on 150+ 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.

  • Beppu Tower Tower line knew that the Asahi Shimbun. The smaller the size to be a landmark. If you look at enough once moving. During the day than at night, when lights are turned on to view.

  • I stopped by and. Spot is not local people, but personally I like. To be sure, almost none, and small glass turned hard crack. But the landscape overlooking the sea and mountain, with its retro and quiet atmosphere at the same time. Surprisingly, I had overstayed. It's like watching the sunset while drinking beer in the lower floor of the observation deck next time. Naito many design terms.
