Fukuoka Tower (234m)

Fukuoka Tower was built in 1989 for the Yokatopia Expo that was held to commemorate the 100th anniversary of municipalizing Fukuoka as a city. The tower stands 234 meters high and is Japan’s tallest seaside tower. From the observation platform at 123 meters above the ground, visitors enjoy a 360 degree panoramic view that covers the city of Fukuoka to Hakata Bay. In the evening, the people of Fukuoka City are fascinated with the magnificent illumination of the tower, which changes its color from season to season. Not only can visitors admire the panoramic views in the observation lounge, but they can enjoy a delightful dining experience made of fresh food produced in Hakata in the western-style restaurant. Visitors can shop for Hakata’s well-known Karashimentaiko made of salted cod roe with red pepper, Hakata’s exquisite cakes and special products in Kyushu, and even inexpensive sweets that will bring back childhood memories.
