Kobe Port Tower, the landmark of the port city of Kobe

The Landmark Tower

The red tower has been loved as the symbol of the City of Kobe for a long period. The Kobe Port Tower is 108 meters in height. It might not be so high as a modern architecture but people feel familiar with this small distinctive shaped building.

The world’s first building to feature a pipe structure, it was nicknamed the Steel Tower Beauty as a result of its unique structure and shape, reminiscent of an elongated Japanese drum, and was awarded a prize by the Architectural Institute of Japan in 1963.

Revolving Cafe

The observatory cafe rotates 360 degrees in 20 minutes.  Visitors enjoy unparalleled views of Kobe as they relax with a drink.
Here is the footage filmed from the cafe.


This is how I filmed this time lapse. An iPhone on a desktop tripod. I didn’t need any special equipment:)
