Beppu Tower, Beppu

1.2
#5 of 15 in Sightseeing in Beppu
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.

  • Cute Showa atmosphere of towers. Seems like a lot of people's fear of heights. Couple Tower in Japan stamp rally, Japan 100 jogakuen boring like (laughs) Hey I'm so there. Tower maps and do not know their is so much in the whole country and was surprised. Streets in the evening eating and 360 degrees overlooking the steaming atmosphere and staff. Tomorrow we go to where is Beppu 8 hot water or greenery, plan to let us think, thanks. In kind of a friendly answer whatever questions, great breakfast.

  • History of one Tower, bought votes is also very special at the 1/f used 販 Mai airport posted by bought, TI comes on 17/f, direct sat TV, Construction on the floor can feel very old San Francisco, still can be bought beer sitting on/f scene or landscape, is one place worth MTV alert.

  • JCB credit card holders free into the field, so in the late Gloria went to a trip. What is dark without head, Club Med for a bit during the day? Local conditions, 15 minutes covered. There are Japanese and outside the country to visit, but stay soon. Hand letter isn't much, Hell patrol the vicinity of the Mai want more, and there is little in disrepair, in some places, broken only for description lists the BU. If pure vegetable essence in high point city, rather happy mist Observatory near UMI Jigoku, can see the risk of ACEs up Beppu Tower.

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.
