Twin Arch 138 (138 meters)
Two arches of different heights in a hyperbolic curve with the elevator shaft in the middle symbolize the “magnificent flow of water in Kiso Three Rivers". The tower stands in Ichinomiya City. Since Ichinomiya sounds like 138 in Japanese, the height of the tower was determined to be 138 meters.
Twin Arch 138 is Japan's first arch-type tower and is tallest of its kind in the East. Two high-speed elevators take the visitors to the observation platform at 100 above the ground in 70 seconds.
