Kobe Port Tower (108m)

Kobe Port Tower, the symbol of Kobe Port, opened in 1963.
The world's first sightseeing tower made of pipe structure and is known for its unique shape that imaged a traditional Japanese hand drum (called tuzumi).
From the rooftop deck at 100 meters above the ground, you can view the port, the city, Mt. Rokko, and Osaka Bay, and at night, the "10 million dollar night view" welcomes you.
