    Nagoya TV Tower is one of many towers that you can find in Japanese cities but Nagoya's tower has the distinction of being the very first tower built in Japan, dating back to 1954. The elevator takes you up to the Sky Deck which offers a nice view and from there you can go up a staircase to the Sky Balcony for an even better view.

    From the top you can see Nagoya Castle, Nagoya Dome, JR Central Towers, Oasis 21, etc. Aside from the view there are also some photo ops inside for couples and places to relax.

    The view of the tower from the outside is nice for those in the Sakae area. At the base of the tower there is a restaurant and a souvenir shop.

    Going to the observation decks costs 600 yen.

    the tv tower in nagoya

    Located in the very center of the city and standing 180 meters tall, this tower is one of the city's most visible modern landmarks and features observation decks that provide spectacular views of central Japan. Built in 1954, this tower was the first multipurpose television transmission tower in Japan and continues today to transmit TV programs for a number of different broadcasting companies. It also houses coffee and souvenir shops.

    See the Nagoya Tower - a television transmitter, but the pride of the city's population. I didn't get the chance to actually get to it, but I did find myself wandering close by one night, where it was lit up like a Christmas tree (unfortunately, I'd left my camera behind, so I got this picture the next day).

    The 180m high tower is the first intensive radio wave tower in Japan. The 100m high sky balcony commands beautiful night views of Nagoya and the port area.
