Birdseye View of Hamamatsu

Views from the Act Tower Observation Desk

By Elena Lisina    - 1 min read

One of my favorite things when I travel is to look at the city from above. Being so high up gives me the special pleasure of watching grand views that are impossible to observe on the ground. So, I always take a ride on a Ferris wheel if there is one, or look for an available observation desk. While visiting Hamamatsu, I spotted a very tall building and found out they had an observation deck. On that day, I was late as it was closed at 17:00, but on the next day, I was there at the right time. The weather was bright and the view was spectacular. Unfortunately, I couldn’t see Fuji-san as the view was “smoky” far away.

Hamamatsu Act Tower is the landmark of Hamamatsu city famous for producing musical instruments. It is a 45–storied building, 212 meters tall. The tower complex contains a hotel, different restaurants, shops, bank ATMs, a post office, meeting halls and more.

I love Japan very much! I like small towns of Japan where I can watch people doing their business and talk to them carefully. They're always friendly. I like Japanese gardens where I can just sit or walk and take my time. Also I like Shinto Jinja as being there I feel in peace. I like to watch sunsets and then to dine in some small local places. I like to soak into onsen after a long day of wandering. I like Japanese crafts very much as all items are made with great taste and skill. Nihon wo daisuki desuyo! My photos from Japan I also place here: Matane!
