Why Kyoto Tower is special ?

Standing 131 meters tall just across Kyoto Station, Kyoto Tower (京都タワー) is Kyoto's tallest building and a rare modern iconic landmark in the city famous for its ancient temples and shrines. The tower was completed in 1964, the same year as the opening of the shinkansen and the Tokyo Olympics.


A viewing platform is located 100 meters above ground and affords a 360 degree view of Kyoto and as far as Osaka on clear days. Kyoto Tower stands on top of a typical commercial building, which contains souvenir shops, restaurants and a hotel, as well as a public bath in the basement.


The Kyoto Tower is an example of Monocoque(structural skin)architecture,wherein the thinner outer shell supports the weight of the structure,similar to the construction of planes or boats, or the natural examples of crabs and shrimp. The Tower body consists of special 12 to 22mm thick steel plates joined into a cylinder.
