The site of EXPO'70, which is up to 260 hectares, has been opened to the public as a big park after gradual repair works since 1972. The first picture shows 'Taiyo no to', The Tower of the Sun, designed by Taro Okamoto who was Japan's leading avant-garde artist. This tower used to be one of the pavilions as a symbolic monument of this exposition. This symbolic tower aside, extensive Japanese gardens also built for EXPO'70 are well maintained, which is designed to show the characteristics of Japanese garden of each era from ancient times up to now. EXPO'70 Commemorative Park has become one of the greatest general parks in Japan, with lodging facilities, various kinds of sports facilities and National Museum of Ethnology built in 1977 as shown in the second picture.
