Miyake-ku Fire Tower Tangible Cultural Property

The fire tower of Miyake-ku is situated almost right in the center of the Miyake Area and serves as a center symbol.
This fire tower was constructed on the roof of a building next to the Atago jizo statue (a bodhisattva protector of children), and is a defining feature of the watch tower. The tower is thought to have been built soon after a devastating fire in Miyake in 1836.
