Beppu Tower, Beppu

(190+ reviews on the web)
Lookout Tourist Spot
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.
