I mentioned in my last post that my daughter and I recently took a visit to the Chiba Port Tower in Chiba City. This tower is very interesting and quite unique. At 125 meters tall (over 400 feet) this tower would normally be around 40 stories, but it actually only has 4 floors. The first floor is where you enter and access the elevators, while the other three floors are all at the upper levels. Two of those floors are observation decks, while the other is a small restaurant/cafe. Everything in between those 3 floors and the first floor is essentially a large elevator shaft. While it’s not the most impressive tower or observatory in the world, it does offer some great views of Tokyo Bay and Chiba City and allows for the use of tripods which comes in really handy when trying to take nice photos from observatories at night. Today’s photo is the Makuhari section of Chiba City, and while not as exciting perhaps as Tokyo skylines, I think the view from the Chiba Port Tower is still pretty impressive.
