Nagoya’s Iconic TV Tower

Japan’s first commercial radio broadcasters began not in Tokyo nor in Osaka, but in Aichi Prefecture’s capital city, Nagoya! Now almost every Japanese city has an iconic broadcast tower, and it all began with Nagoya’s centrally located TV Tower in the city’s Hisaya Odori Park. Nagoya TV Tower, Japan’s first multi-wave capable radio and TV broadcast tower, was completed in June of 1954, 4 years before the now famous Tokyo Tower. At the time it was an engineering marvel for a Japan still emerging from the ashes of WW2.

CLOSURE NOTICE: Nagoya TV Tower’s facilities closed January 2019, for maintenance and seismic retrofitting works. The Tower is expected to reopen and resume operations in the summer of 2020.

Nagoya TV Tower

The all steel Nagoya TV Tower, said to have been designed with Paris’ Eiffel Tower in mind and once destroyed in a classic Godzilla movie, stands 180m high and along with Nagoya Castle, is probably one of the best recognized landmarks in Nagoya. Although its 57-year-long role as a communications tower ended on July 24, 2011 with the phasing out of analogue TV broadcasts across Japan, Nagoya-City, in recognizing its iconic and historical value, decided to maintain it as a symbol of Nagoya. As such, Nagoya TV Tower has since been designated a Nationally Registered Tangible Cultural Property.

Nagoya TV Tower (Nagoya Terebi-to)

Visitors long enjoyed day and night views of the Nagoya-City townscape from the Sky Deck, an indoor observatory 90 m above the ground, and the outdoor Sky Balcony 100 m up. The tower was lit up at night, and despite its current closure for renovations even now continues to draw attention as one of Nagoya's standard sightseeing spots. The Nagoya TV Tower management look forward to welcoming back visitors when the tower reopens in 2020.
