Beppu Tower, Beppu

#27 of 70 in Things to do in Beppu
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.

  • So far with the appearance at night is lit up conspicuous is beautiful, but let's go to the Observatory once and canari local, local sense is not by hate. Rather than rather like, what is the... Get off the elevator and restaurant people? But atmosphere greeted us very bad feeling and you don't want to eat not too strong, leave it off to climb again from rather's symbol of Beppu?! And just look.

  • This is the Tower? But that's right. That's the Beppu Tower. If you look at the tie in the evening and a smiley face that's the end.

  • Noboremasu at 200 yen per person. Shikoku looks views overlooking Beppu Bay, it is fine. Glass enters the cracks and the article contains pretty atmosphere. Hakata port Tower and free in so far, so admission was more expensive.

Where to stay in Beppu

The majority of accommodations in Beppu lie in two main areas. The first, down by the coast and close to the main train station, offers a number of hotels with "onsen" (traditional Japanese spas), as well as some right on the waterfront. On the side streets here, you can find a few hostels and guesthouses, offering comfortable rooms but nothing more. The second main area lies to the north. Further inland, the area centers on the many geothermal features here, with an abundance of hotels surrounded on all fronts by onsen.
