Nagoya TV Tower

Nagoya TV Tower

Any fans of Godzilla should immediately recognize the Nagoya TV Tower. The famous reptile destroyed the tower in the 1964 movie Mothra vs. Godzilla and it was again demolished in the 1992 remake, Godzilla vs. Mothra. When the TV tower isn’t being wrecked by kaiju monsters it serves as an observation tower with two decks—one at 90-meters high and the other at 100-meters up. There is also a restaurant and an art gallery at the 30-meter mark. Completed in 1954, Nagoya TV Tower is the oldest of its kind in Japan. It’s also known as the Thunder Tower, thanks to the nighttime illumination program. It’s easily admired from the water dome of nearby Oasis 21. The Tower will reopen on September 19, 2020, with hotel rooms available on the 4th and 5th floors.
