Opened in 1963, the Kobe Port Tower soon became a symbol of the city of Kobe.
Designed by the Nikken Sekkei Company, the design is based on a Japanes drum, the Tsuzumi, and was the first tower built using a pipe lattice.
The tower is 108 metres high, and the observation platform is at 90 metres.
The tower is open every day of the year and entrance is 600 yen.
