The elevator has a glass wall so you can see everything going up and down,(a little unnerving). At the top I had an ice cream and enjoyed the view.

Free entrance to the museum and the observatory. Go to the top floor to take pictures with the Kyushu bridge as the background. 1 hour is sufficient for the observatory. There are nearby car park.

Agree with other reviewers - relaxing to watch a portion of the daily 700+ ships that use the waterway. 270 degree view. Bar upstairs if you want a drink (coffee/soft/alcohol). Worth a look.

Amazing place and you can see the sea and around the city. The drinks are average but I like the most is the view from the observatory room. It was also nice to relax yourself at the top of the building.
