The first steel tower in Japan to transmit multiple waves, built 4 years before Tokyo Tower

Nagoya TV Tower is in Hisaya Odori Park, and was finished on June 19, 1954. It is acknowledged to be the first steel tower in Japan to transmit multiple waves.

Nagoya TV Tower

Tokyo Tower was completed in 1958 and Sapporo Tower in 1957, which shows just how advanced Nagoya TV Tower was. The tower is 180 m tall. It is one of the nation's registered tangible cultural properties, and boasts more than 50 years of history as a sightseeing tower.

Made by the sheer strength of man-power!

Nagoya TV Tower

Construction began in 1953. The machinery of the time was inadequate, so all the work was carried out by manpower, for example digging out the soil for the foundations with pickaxes and shovels and lifting up the steel frame by hand.

Staying as a symbol of Nagoya, even after the completion of its utilitarian role

Nagoya TV Tower

Its role as a communications tower came to an end on July 24, 2011 with the end of analogue TV broadcasts, but , in a regular assembly that June, the city had decided to keep it as a symbol of Nagoya. So, visitors can still enjoy the same views as before: daytime townscapes and gorgeous nightscapes from the Sky Deck, an indoor observatory 90 m above the ground, and the outdoor Sky Balcony 100 m up. The tower is lit up at night, and continues to draw attention as one of Nagoya's standard sightseeing spots.
