The 108-meter-high Kobe Port Tower is one of the most famous landmarks of the port city of Kobe. The observation tower was completed in 1963. A key feature is its tubular construction, and it was the first tower to have this form of construction. The structure resembles a Tsuzumi, an elongated traditional Japanese drum and the first tower in Japan to be illuminated at night.
He has received numerous awards in both the architecture and lighting categories.
From the observation deck, visitors have a spectacular panoramic view of the harbor, the city and the Rokko Mountains on the horizon.
Interactive panels and audio guides are offered in all four directions and the design of the ceiling of the observation deck offers a romantic representation of the starry sky of the city of Kobe.
