TV Tower
Lover's Sanctuary

Nagoya TV Tower is the first intensive broadcast wave emitting tower in Japan with a design
inspired by the Eiffel Tower in France. It is for five TV stations.
However, the terrestrial analog TV broad casting will be compleated on July 24, 2011,
and this TV tower will end its service.
180 meters high........4F/30m Restaurant & gallery, 90m (Sky deck), 100m (Sky balcony)
It was buidt in the center of the Hisaya-Oodori Park on June 19, 1954.
In 2006, it was renewed. You will enjoy a spectacular view of Nagoya city,
Noubi Plain, Ise Bay, the Suzuka mountains, the Yoro mountains.
On a nice day, you can see Mikawa Bay and the North Alps in Japan.

Nagoya TV Tower was designated as
"Lover's Sanctuary/Koibito no Seichi" in 2006
by a nonprofit organization "Support Center
for Local Revitalization",
though it is not so popular among Nagoyan people.
On the observation floor, there is a "Promise Heart"

The sign said that....

Here I declare this land as "Lover's Sanctuary" to impart
the joy and the magic of encounters, blissful marriages,
