Fukuoka Tower – Fukuoka | Travel Information

Fukuoka Tower, located in the city of Fukuoka, is Japan’s tallest seaside tower with a total height of 234m (768ft.)

As of February 1st, 2019, Fukuoka Tower reopened after some renovations made to the lobby and observation decks, giving the tower a new and fresh look. The tower was first opened in 1989 and has since become a popular spot for viewing the sunset by locals and tourists alike. 

Night visits are also very common, and is common to see people here on dates as they gaze at the lights of the city.

Despite the tower being 234m tall, the observation deck which you can visit only sits at 123m (404ft). However, the observation deck is high enough to give you an amazing view of the city of Fukuoka and the surrounding area.  The observation deck offers a 360° view and is well worth stopping by, particularly on a clear and beautiful day.

There are a couple restaurants and eateries inside the tower, so make sure that while you are there, grab a bit to eat at one of the highest restaurants in the city.
