One of the interesting places to visit in Osaka is the Tsutenkaku Tower, which is a short tower standing only at 103 meters high. This unique tower is also found in the Shinsekai district of Osaka, where you can find a lot of local Osaka style street food.
Tsutenkaku Tower was built in 1912 and similarities between the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe can be seen in the design here. Originally it was built at a height of only 64 meters tall but during the second world war, the tower was damaged and then disassembled.
After the war, the Japanese people requested that the tower be rebuilt, and a new tower was constructed and opened again in 1956 with the new height of 103 meters tall. The translation of Tsutenkaku to English is “Tower Reaching Heaven”.
