(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.

  • Tower of the Sun seen from Highway heh-I that was powerful and it seemed to watch go near. I thought Singapore merlion and disappointed that in their own image. See there but unfortunately, invisible back some under construction, is satisfied.

  • Come to the Expo Park will always take photos of Tower. I think is also one of the symbols of Osaka, and is a symbol of the Expo Park. Has a presence in the Park. Lawn Square Tower is beautifully maintained and beautiful flowers are in bloom, so take a photo with a tower and is a good feeling. I think that tower is aging, does not in general quite put like when good.
