Enter inside the Tower of the Sun for the first time
We live in Oasaka, Japan.
Although we had been to Expo’70 Commemorative Park and seen the Tower of the Sun many times from outside,
we entered inside it for the first time before.

Our family member were parents, 4 years old child and 1 year old baby.

Children younger than elementary school age：
2 people for free but reservation is needed!
And with using elevator.
The fee includes The Tower of the Sun Museum(=inside the tower) and The Natural and Cultural Gardens (and Japanese Garden).
The Tower of the Sun stands in The Natural and Cultural Gardens (and Japanese Garden) in Expo’70 commemorative park.
And you can chose climing stairs as well.
It’s not so hard to climb the stairs.
You might want to see with using stairs.
If so, you can watch a lot of things slowly and widely.
I hope we see the inside with climbing the stairs in the future after my children grow up.

You can’t climb stairs with holding your children.
And you can’t bring a stroller to the elevator either.
When you take your baby, you have to hold him/her and use the elevator.
Go to the Expo’70 Commemorative Park
We went by train and got off at Bampaku-kinen-koen Station on Osaka Monorail line.
‘Bampaku-kinen-koen’ stands Expo’70 commemorative Park in Japanese.
And walked and walked.
We got to the tickets window.
We got issued the tickets for the park at window for group.
(not window for indivisual customers or ticket-vending machine)
We need to show the e-mail for reservation at that time.
This is the ticket for ‘The Natural and Cultural Gardens and Japanese Garden’.
Another is the ticket for the Tower of the Sun, like these.
We entered at the gate of the park and walked slope toword the tower.
Let’s enter the Tower of the Sun
We were checked the earlier tickets and put baby stroller in a certain place.
Finally we went inside…
We can photograph only the first floor.
A lot of masks of some kinds of tribes.
It’s very exotic atmosphere and overwhelmed.
It’s the fourth face of the Tower of the Sun, which represents the human spiritual world.
Tree of life.
The tree of life expresses the process of evolution.
The root is protists like amoeba.
Getting higher and higher, Evolve more and the top is Cro-Magnon.
Amoeba on the root.
All of my family member was impressed.
Probably baby as well♪
After that, We climbed by elevator.
There are no photos after this because shooting is not permitted.
In my memory…The tree was almost like this!
Each of them have a certain message.
We were so impressed that we could only say ‘Oh’.
After we saw all, we went down to the 1st floor, got out of the exit.
We stoped by a souvenir shop.
Souvenirs in the Tower of the Sun
We bought some souvenir.

Reflector for safety.
