The Tower of the Sun, Suita

(4/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Providing a memorable backdrop for a few snapshots of the city, The Tower of the Sun sits within a park created for the Expo '70, the first World's Fair ever held in Asia. The statue is around 65 m (213 ft) tall, with both of its arms 25 m (82 ft) long. The sun wears three faces in this sculpture--a golden mask on top, a black one on the back, and a red on the front.

  • If you haven't seen it, come to the Expo Park, finishing is. What is fact enters the eye from anywhere, so a very large monument, too. However before and looks behind is clear, so access from Hankyu hotel and face.

  • The Tower of the Sun of Expo 70-47 years, and a half century has expired, but still loved from locals, taro Okamoto. Near monorail and high-speed roads ran the Ferris wheel Expo city in Japan. Future once forecast here. In the Tower of the Sun without feeling old at all in his sonorous blend around the stands. Look up with feet in the Park and more even more powerful. It is a sight to see.

  • If you always wanted to come could come at last, Wednesday was closed. But that size also looks just inside the Park is the Tower of the Sun and can get up pretty close, so you can. Walk from the train station, to the foot of the tower can be reached in about 10 minutes.
