KOBE PORT TOWER

Posted: July 26, 2015 in Uncategorized

Kobe Port Tower, the first pipe-structured building in the world was constructed in 1963 with observation deck offering 360-degree view of Kobe city. This symbolic tower’s unique shape came from the image of Japanese hand drum. The red tower is vividly illuminated by 7,000 LED lights at night at night.

Kobe Port Tower’s height is 108m, much lower than Tokyo Tower (333m) and Tokyo Sky Tree (634m) completed in 1958 and 2012 respectively.
