About
Nagoya TV Tower was constructed as part of a Nagoya City urban planning project to enable the broadcast of tourism information and television signals. It was designed with disaster prevention and urban scenery in mind by Waseda University Professor Tachu Naito, who later designed Sapporo TV Tower and Tokyo Tower. The Nagoya tower was built by a shipbuilding company by Kobe, Japan using approximately 1,000 tons of steel materials. Construction began September 29, 1953 and took approximately eight and a half months to reach completion on June 19, 1954. Today, Nagoya TV Tower is the premier landmark of Nagoya. It was registered as a Tangible Culture Property of Japan in 2005.

We didn't go inside but took photos outside Nagoya TV tower only. For me, it isn't too special as it is not too different from the other TV tower in Japan. If you don't have spare time in Nagoya, you needn't go there. You should spend time in other spots instead.

As a landmark, it's a good meeting point, and good spot to view the city from above, so romantic when it's sunset.

I was hoping to have a little picnic at the nearby Hisaya Odori Park while admiring the tower. It's like watching the Eifel... But the park was entirely closed for what seem to be a massive commercial development. Sad.
For best view of the tower, go up Oasis 21 at sunset.

Built in 1954, this 180m high tower was Japan's first television antenna tower. However, when analog television broadcasting was terminated in 2011, the tower's role was ended. When we visited, the tower was undergoing construction and closed to visitors. We could only take photos of it from afar.

That kind of TV/Radio towers are quite common in Japan. But this is the oldest one. It was raining heavily when i visited there so I couldn't go to the section which is half open. But the space inside offered great view to the city and there was excellent information about what you see on each side of the building.

残念ながら現在半世紀ぶりに改装中、どうなるのかわかりませんが、改装結果が楽しみです。TV塔の看板には2020年6月に工事が終わると表記してあります。鉄塔上屋は、関西の雄、竹中工務店が。下部の公園整備工事は、関東の雄、大成建設が工事中です。1年半もかけるのですから、きっと素晴らしいものが現れると期待しております。皆で是非覗いてみましょう!
Unfortunately, I do not know what works going on during one and half years renovation term. Still we are looking forward to the results of this chance. The sign of the Nagoya TV tower states that the construction will be completed in June 2020. The tower superstructure is one of top contractors in Kansai, Takenaka Corporation. The ground part of the park renovation work is under construction by Taisei construction in same timing, one of big heads in east Japan Kanto. It takes about a year and a half, so we expect that something wonderful will come out. Let's all come and see!

The Wife, Junior and I were on a weekend trip to the port city of Nagoya.
One of the iconic sights which can be seen from all around, is
the tall TV tower, which seems to be as much of an attraction
today, as it was in the days of terrestrial television
transmission, when this structure was in use. I have been quite a
fan of tall TV towers, be it in Tokyo, Vilnius (Lithuania), or Nagoya.
We had gone there in the evening. Unfortunately, our tight itinerary did
not allow us a visit to the tower itself, so we saw the
time-varying lighting on the tower from the outside. We went atop
the Oasis21 shopping complex, and enjoyed the lights come on in
the evening on the tower, and change patterns with time.

If you only plan to visit the tower, then its not worth it. Its just a tower in the middle of the park. But if you go around and shop in the area, then it should be fine.
