Although the tower itself is rather old (opened 1957), on top it provides great (360 degree) views of the surrounding areas. The entrance fee is just 200 Yen, but be aware the tower is always closed on Wednesdays.

The entrance fee was 200 yen each adult. However, those who have a JCB credit card could access the tower for free. There were 17 floors in total. The observation deck was obviously very old (build in the 1950s) because some glass windows were slightly...More
