Busan Tower

Like many other cities, Busan has a tall structure that you can go to the top of to get a nice view of the city. Busan’s variation on this theme is Busan Tower.  It was built in 1973 and is 120 m tall, or almost 400 ft.

We found the tower! That's my friend pointing out where it is.

    • It’s a little bit of both actually. The company was started in Japan by a Korean national (i.e. Zainichi Korean). The company is now much much much bigger in Korea. In Japan they have a baseball team, a fast food chain (Lotteria) and a confectionery division (making crunky, koala yummies, etc.), but in Korea they have a baseball team, a confectionary division, hotels, high rise apartments, department stores and an amusement park (Lotteworld). Apparently their world HQ are in Shinjuku, so technically i guess they would be Japanese maybe. ?
