Beautiful Views of Kobe Port Tower

The hyperbolic identity of Kobe City

Manish Prabhune   - 1 min read

Most of the major cities in Japan have a communication tower which usually also doubles up as a tourism attraction. Tokyo has two of them, Tokyo Skytree and Tokyo Tower. Osaka, Nagoya and Yokohama have their own too and so does the port city of Kobe. The Kobe Port Tower has a unique wireframe structure made out of red colored pipes arranged in a hyperbolic form. The tower can be accessed by tourists who can take an elevator to the observatory which offers unique views and a wonderful cafe to spend some time. This photo story details multiple views I have taken over a two year period. Hope they inspire you to visit someday!

Travelling to various places and locations in Japan for over 20 years now, I want to share my experiences and also hear about destinations that I still have not been to in the land of the rising sun. Am a photography enthusiast and love to do slow shutter blue hour photography in Tokyo.
