  • It is standing on a hill and provides a great panoramic views of Nagoya. Compared to the zoo side, it was rather quiet and comfortably providing space for relax for small additions to zoo...  more »
  • As my title suggests, that is it's primary purpose. If you want to visit the place, buy the package ticket at the Higashiyama zoo for 600 yen. You can have a 360 view of whole Nagoya city.  more »

  • You could see the whole town from it. I'd say it's a nice place to visit.
  • Higashiyama Sky Tower was opened in 1989 as part of the commemoration of the centennial of Nagoya City’s foundation. Aside from the observation deck, it also has a restaurant. Being a disaster-prone country (especially earthquakes), the Sky Tower was also fitted with a vibration-damping equipment, designed to absorb energy from the earthquakes (I believe many buildings in Japan were also fitted with similar systems). The Sky Tower is also used as a relay station for disaster-prevention wireless communications of the local government. Standing over Mount Higashi by 134 meters, the glass needle-like Higashiyama Sky Tower is perfect to have a view of the entire zoo, botanical gardens, Nagoya City and its nearby places. Too bad we weren’t able to stay long enough to see the sunset and the night view.
