The towering landmark of Kobe is your aerie for cityscape views

Completed in 1963, Kobe Port Tower was designed by the Nikken Sekkei Company, the famous Japanese architecture firm behind works like the Tokyo Skytree and the redesigned Barcelona Camp Nou, the largest stadium in Europe.

You can reach the tower by train and a short walk.

Located nearby Meriken Park, the Kobe Port Tower is a 10-minute walk south of Motomachi Station.

Catch the stunning views at night

Towering an impressive 108 meters high, this sightseeing structure was designed to resemble a traditional hourglass-shaped Japanese drum that is often used in Noh and kabuki theater. With the red latticing mimicking the red ropes of the drum and entwined LED lighting, Kobe Port Tower at night is one of the city's most breathtaking sights.

Facilities inside the building

Inside the building, the tower has a number of observation decks. Also located inside the building is a revolving sake lounge that makes a full rotation every 20 minutes, giving you ample time to take in the city's beauty.
