This site is currently closed for seismic retrofitting. During the renovation, a projection mapping show is screened on the sheets covering the tower. This is a unique light display that is only available now. (The site is slated to open again for business in 2023). The marvelous exterior of this building has a lovely hourglass shape and is known as a landmark of Kobe. Featuring a unique pipe structure, it is referred to as the "Steel Beauty." This building is famous for having been the first of its kind in Japan to be illuminated with a light display. Once the site reopens, you can look forward to the vast panorama that unfolds from the observation deck.
