The Tower of the Sun, Suita

4.3
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.

  • It is a symbol of the Expo Memorial Park. You can go to the front of the eye. When looked at in the near power is awesome. You can see the design on the back.

  • Taro Okamoto art. When you come to Osaka always want to be. In 1973, Buri will be placed in the Tower of the Sun. Reservation is required.

  • A fantastically bizarre structure and an important symbol of Osaka. Located next to expo city and in the expo park, there's loads to do. The view from the Ferris wheel is also stunning. Looking forward to when it will be open for viewing from the inside.
  • This is a pretty cool place to visit even though it is a little dated now. Make sure you walk completely around it to see everything.
  • Wonderful park, I come here as often as I can. Its huge and has so many different aspects you can keep coming and discover something new with every visit. You also have the treat of watching each new season unfold. They really work hard to display the flowers and plants of different times of the year. Easy to park and (relatively) easy to come by train. If you are in Kansai, its worth the trip.
  • Cite tower / monument that symbolizes Banpaku in Osaka !
  • Beautiful park with amazing art and museums, it's a bit difficult to get here but if you can make the trip I highly recommend it!
