Kaikyo Yume Tower is a landmark in Shimonoseki that boasts a height of 153 meters. The spherical glass dome of the observatory is said to be the world's first, and the panoramic view includes not only the Kanmon Straits, but also a spectacular view of the Seto Inland Sea, Ganryu Island, the mountains on the opposite side of Kyushu, and the Sea of Japan. The tower is a popular spot for couples to enjoy the sea shining in the evening sunset and the night view of Shimonoseki and Kyushu. A variety of nighttime illuminations are held, and the colors change depending on the season and day of the week.
