Nagoya TV Tower & Oasis 21

The Nagoya TV Tower is the oldest TV tower in Japan, completed in 1954. This iconic landmark was featured in the 1992 movie Godzila vs Mothra where the monsters attack Nagoya and destroy the tower.

The latest attraction in this district of Sakae is the futuristic Oasis 21 complex, which houses the main highway bus terminal, shops and restaurants.

Completed in 2002, the roof is affectionately likened to a 'water spaceship' reflecting the image of the Tower.
