The Japanese Village Plaza Fire Tower is a replica of a traditional fire lookout tower in rural Japan. It was built in 1978 as part of a Little Tokyo revitalization effort. The tower is 60 feet tall and has a blue roof. The tower is a popular tourist destination and is often used as a backdrop for photos.
