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.

The fire tower is located in the Japanese Village Plaza, which is a two-level complex featuring a range of Japanese eateries, markets, retailers, offices & gift shops. The plaza is located at 335 E 2nd St, Los Angeles, CA 90012. It is open from 7am to 7pm daily.

The tower was originally constructed of wood, but in 2010 it was replaced with a metal replica due to termite damage. The new tower is still a replica of the original, but it is made of a more durable material.

The fire tower is a symbol of Little Tokyo and its Japanese heritage. It is a reminder of the strong community that exists in Little Tokyo and the importance of preserving Japanese culture. The tower is also a popular tourist destination, and it helps to draw people to Little Tokyo to experience its unique culture.

Here are some of the reasons why the fire tower is there:
• To provide a visual reminder of Little Tokyo's Japanese heritage.
• To attract tourists to the area.
• To provide a place for people to gather and socialize.
• To serve as a landmark for the community.

The fire tower is a beloved landmark in Little Tokyo, and it is sure to continue to be a popular destination for many years to come.

Located at Japanese Village Plaza Mall on 1st Street.
