The View from the Observatory and the Illumination of the Tower is a Must-See!
Kaikyo Yume Tower opened in July 1996 as a landmark of the Kanmon Straits. From the observation room with a total length of 153m and 143m on the top floor, you can enjoy a 360-degree view. In the tower, there are panels and monitors that explain the history of Yamaguchi Prefecture from the Yayoi period to the present, such as “Battle of Dannoura” and “Duel of Korean Wave Island” in an easy-to-understand manner.
