Must-sees! Seven highlights of renovated Fukuoka Tower are introduced all at once!2019.02.14
Fukuoka Tower was reopened on February 1, 2019, which had been closed for thorough renovation work for the first time since its opening in 1989!
Realizing the concept of renovation, “create memories of Fukuoka at Fukuoka Tower”, the tower was reborn as a facility offering memorable experiences and impressions to all visitors including friends, families, and couples.
Taking an advantage of the characteristics of a seaside tower, the interior was remodeled, where you can experience the “from the sea to the sky” plot. On top of this, the content in which you can find and experience the new Fukuoka while enjoying the sky and outlook of Fukuoka was added.
“SKY Walk 123 steps (VR binoculars)” in which you can have a walk-in-the-sky experience over Nokonoshima Island, Maizuru Park, or other places of the city and “Fukuoka Time Laps Panorama” which provides information of famous spots and facilities in the city along with images of a variety of sceneries seen from the tower are available.
The huge “Sky Gacha” that looks like capsule toys falling from the sky, or “Happening Window”, a trick window where you can enjoy tricks as if something is happening out of the window, and many more!
