Mojiko Retro Observation Room

Mojiko Retro area History and historic sites / See / Play

This observation room is located on the top floor of Mojiko Retro Highmart, a high-rise apartment designed by Kurokawa Kisho, a representative Japanese architect.

This glass-walled room, with an open atmosphere, provides a wonderful 270° panoramic view of the entire Mojiko Retro area and the Kanmon Strait from 103 meters high above.

Not to mention a distant, uninterrupted view available only during the day, a night view of the brilliantly illuminated nearby area is also recommended. The observation room is also installed with state-of-the-art equipment, including digital telescopes that magnify an image up to 17 times.

The observation room also has a cafe, where you can enjoy relaxing.
