Osaka (Radar Tower) - Osaka Japan

This tower, which is part of the harbour control radar system, also acts as an active light for navigation. The tower is 50 metres tall (164 feet) and has two galleries at the top with various equipment including the beacon. The tower is a bronze or gold colour with green metal framing around the galleries. It is located on a man made island between the north and south Osaka harbours. Photos were taken in March 2017
