Its name means something like "the tower that touches the sky" because though its 103 meters does not draw a lot of attention today compared with other places in Japan, like the Tokyo Tower, when it was built in 1912, it was fairly popular nationwide and many people came to its observation deck at a little over 90 metres.

When the amusement park closed it was decided that the tower would remain as an observatory for the city.
