Sanko Yumeminato Tower

Sanko Yumeminato Tower

Sanko Yumeminato Tower was built in 1997 as a symbol of the Sanin Yumeminato Expo. Also known as Japan Expo Tottori '97, the event was held from July 12 to September 28, 1997. The tower's outer walls are completely glass-paned, and steel pillars and rings create a white frame in a complex pattern. It is an impressive sight. The unique structure applies the principle of tensegrity, and employs a large amount of laminated cedar wood from Nichinan Town, Tottori Prefecture. With this material, the tower provides visitors with a gentle, warm welcome. Rising 43 meters into the air in the city of Sakaiminato, this landmark tower contains a variety of commercial facilities.
