“Beautiful views of the city, and on a clear day, the mountains behind it and some islands in the distance over the ocean. Observatories are one of the best ways to get a sense of space in a new city, so if you’re into that I would definitely recommend coming here.” – Michael Stump (Google review)
“Fukuoka Tower: a 234 meters tall tower located in the Momochihama area of Fukuoka. It is the tallest seaside tower in Japan. The highest observation deck at 123m has a 360-degree view of the surrounding area. Different illuminations based on season. About a 15-min walk from the nearest subway station. Reasonable pricing (¥640 with foreigner discount). Please note that there have been a huge number of Korean tourists lately (they come by tour buses). Due to the popularity of Instagram, they would create huge lines at the key photo spots. If you arrive at the same time it could get a little annoying as the tower is tiny. If you have a special occasion and want to relax and enjoy the view, I would recommend making a reservation at the sky lounge restaurant. ¥12,000 (total for 2 people) for a 2-hour full dinner course with one free starter drink and a cake with message). You will be able to enjoy the view in peace. Start at 6:30 pm and you will be able to catch the sunset.” – Christina Leung (Google review)
