    "Nihondaira Digital Broadcasting Tower is a 95.5 meter-high digital broadcasting tower that is situated on top of the Nihondaira plateau in the foothills of Mt. Fuji. Its official name is ""Nihondaira Digital Broadcasting Station."" The tower is a multi-station broadcasting tower responsible for broadcasting TV signals in Shizuoka Prefecture; it serves as the primary television broadcasting station for Shizuoka. Located as it is in a scenic spot near Mt. Fuji, great care was taken to ensure that the design of the tower blends in with the Nihondaira landscape. As the tower is not a tourist facility, it is not possible to go inside, and visitors should not attempt to climb the tower."
