Beppu Tower, Beppu

#24 of 97 in Things to do in Beppu
A stark example of Japan's unique post-war modernization, Beppu Tower still stands as the city's prime landmark. This 100 m (330 ft) tall former television transmission tower gives visitors a 360-degree view of the area. Built in 1957 and once a technological marvel, the structure shows how architecture of a country can be modern without being westernized. A curious photo exhibition on the 17th floor documents the tower's history, showing images of many Japanese celebrities who visited in the past.

  • We went in the evening, with no more expectation of seeing anything but the steam columns coming out from everywhere in Beppu, which we achieved. The interior is old, simple, which makes me think that the place had "better times" with some nostalgia, which I like. It was a completely unusual feeling in Japan, where everything looks so perfect. There was one person selling souvenirs, and photographs of other towers in Japan. The entrance was very cheap, and the time we were worth it.

  • I couldn't enter the stadium because I didn't have enough time, but I missed the showa-like appearance. It is recommended to light up at night. I wanted to see the light-up at night if there was time.
