This is not Eiffel Tower, that’s Chubu Electric Power MIRAI TOWER!

Known as Nagoya TV tower till 2021, it’s one of the masterpieces of Tachi Naito built in 1954.

After the recent renovation a hotel occupied a few floors and there is 90-meter high Sky Deck and 100-meter high Sky Balcony. During our visit, there was The Naked Sakura Tower art project: the cherry blossoms along with some other spring flowers are projected on the windows of observation desk.

By the way, this is Tachi Naito who introduced a new earthquake proof concepts and is the architect behind Tokyo Tower too.

I’ll never stop saying this: Kyoto is a must in your itinerary, especially if you’re visiting Japan for the first time!
Although it’s not an administrative capital of the country any longer (the capital was moved to Tokyo in 1868 once the power of the shogunate was over and the Imperial family wanted a new start), it’s undoubtedly still its cultural capital.
It’s a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, and it has so many historical monuments and sites you won’t be able to see a fraction of them in a day!
I’ve prepared a list of the most famous locations and things to do in Kyoto: you’ll probably need at least 3 days to see those as they are located quite far away from each other, spread over 11 different wards or districts. Check this on
This year I visited Kyoto for the third time – and I was so blessed with late Sakura blossoms🌸🌸🌸 #purpurpurpur_guides🔎🌎
