Standing tall at an imposing height of 234 metres, Fukuoka Tower is Japan's tallest seaside tower and is one of Fukuoka's most prominent landmarks. The tower was built in 1989 following 14 months of construction, in celebration of Fukuoka City's 100th year anniversary and is presently considered to be a symbol of the city. The tower offers three observation rooms for visitors including the highest observation room at 123 metres that provides visitors a magnificent 360 degree panoramic view of the surrounding city as well as prominent sights of the city such as the Hakata wharf and Sefuri Mountain. The Lover's Sanctuary is another attraction of the tower, where couples hang a heart shaped key on a fence together in hopes of their love lasting forever. At night, the entire tower lights up in various colours and patterns, creating a truly magnificent view.
