TV Tower is the symbol of Sakae, and it is surrounded by Hisaya Odori Park. There are avenues lined with camphor trees and fountains, and at night, an illuminated TV Tower is beautiful. Next to that same tower is the large facility of Oasis 21. Part of the facility was built with the environment in mind as it uses rain water and sunlight for power, and there is a relaxing grassy area and a huge glass roof that is 14 meters above the ground where you can take a walk in the sky.
