Tsutenkaku is a steel tower in the nostalgic Shinsekai area of Osaka, not far from Tennoji. Despite its height of 328ft (100m) being easily outranked by more recent buildings, it is still well-known as a symbol of Osaka's modern history. Its origins go back to the early 20th century, but it was refashioned into the current structure after World War Two. It was designed by the same architect as Tokyo Tower and shares the Paris Eiffel Tower as its inspiration.
