When you arrive by ship it stands out as a significant icon. It's big and red and looks like a sculpture rather than a tower. I would like to climb to the top but no chance for me. Great for a picture or a walk...More

Tower was interesting although average. Marina water was very dirty but it was after a historic rain. Shops were good, Restaurants at Bayside place had kid friendly French restaurant that was very good. The Onsen was very nice and clean.

No many tourists visit this Tower, but ideal for couples and children with beautiful view of Fukuoka City on one side and the Ocean on the other.

There is a museum downstairs and entry to the observation deck is free. They could have charge a fee and there would be visitors as observation deck means that you get a bird eye view. Clear glass, although with safety meshing, the view as good...More
