Chiba Port Tower, Chiba

(3.5/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
The stark and slender Chiba Port Tower rises 125.1 m (410.4 ft) above Chiba Port, affording panoramic views over the city and the ocean. Built in 1986 to commemorate the region's population reaching 5 million, the building serves solely as an observational point, with deceptively few floors. On the ground floor you'll find a souvenir shop, from where you can take an elevator ride to the top three levels. At the tower's summit you'll find the main event, the view. Take in 360-degree vistas, with sunsets making great photo opportunities. Just below you'll find a cafe and refreshments, and a lower observation floor aimed at couples. Head to this floor with your sweetheart, and clip a symbolic, heart-shaped padlock onto the window grates. Chiba Port Tower is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Chiba Edition.

  • This is the first time that young children went to the Park around there I went up to the tower. It's made in 1986 (0/1986). From the fourth floor overlooking Tokyo Bay and on the 3rd floor was excellent value for money buffet restaurant, on the first floor.

  • The port Tower of Chiba City is impressive. Made of glass, you can see the Mount Fuji, the Skytree and all Tokyo Bay. We can see the sunset and illumination of the city.

  • Went on a long time, but 1/4, still celebrating the holiday will do? It was closed. I took pictures. Sky was blue sky. This is from Chiba station to Chiba Minato monorail and went on foot. I think it took me less than 10 minutes. Streets far from Chiba Minato station Chiba port Tower is newly developed, new condominiums and stores were made.

  • Beautiful view! Possible to get ferry trip here.
  • Should not come here in raining days
  • Location situated near the Bay and, when approaching the sunset gives a wonderful view to the city of Tokyo.

  • The rain was visited, then almost weren't. It's pay goes up to the top of the tower. No sense goes up when the weather is bad. Never say can't stop from the parking lot is pretty wide, I think. (Unsure during high season)
