Beautiful landscape!

The view from the Tower is different from the others I've seen in Japan: less skyscrapers, more "small" buildings, so many parks. It was very beautiful and interesting! The only... read more

Nice view of Hamamatsu City on a clear day. Entrance fee of 500yen. The level is also used for weddings as there is a wedding chapel available. Very nice with plenty of seating as well. Would def recommend to come!

We could see Mt. Fuji in the distance. Also has nice 360 degree views. Very calming. The area is well maintained.

The view from the Tower is different from the others I've seen in Japan: less skyscrapers, more "small" buildings, so many parks. It was very beautiful and interesting! The only we appreciate less is that the towwer closes early, around 6pm, so you can't see the city at night grom the tower. Anyway was a nice experience, thanks!

Act Tower is one of my favorite places in the world. But then I used to work just next door...so it's was very convenient. And I love the fact you can see it for miles and miles. Since Japanese cities rarely name their streets, it's easy to get lost. But in Hamamatsu I can always find my way home, due... More
