About Tsutenkaku Tower

Tsutenkaku Tower

Built in 1912, Tsutenkaku Tower was the tallest tower in Japan at the time at 75 meters. It was once demolished due to a fire, but the current Tsutenkaku Tower, which boasts a height of 108 meters, was completed in 1956.

The basement to third floors of Tsutenkaku Tower are commercial floors with souvenir shops and cafes, while the fourth and fifth floors and the rooftop (open-air) are observation decks for which a fee is charged.
The outdoor observatory has a see-through floor called “TIP THE TSUTENKAKU,” which is a thrilling experience.
Also, a statue of “Billiken,” the god of fortune, is installed on the observation deck of Tsutenkaku, and it is believed to bring good luck if you stroke the soles of its feet.

In addition, a slide called “TOWER SLIDER,” which goes all the way down to the first basement floor 22 meters above the ground, was launched in May 2022, although it is an extra charge.
