The elevator tower is 28 meters high and seats 20 passengers.
It is located on the route from the Aichi Earth Expo Memorial Park Park Station on the Linimo train (Eastern Hills Line) to the Ghibli Park “Seishun no Oka” area (approx. 0.8 hectare) and the Ghibli Grand Warehouse (approx. 0.8 hectare), and will provide a barrier-free passage between the station and the park.
Renewal of elevators in the Memorial Park
It was originally constructed in 2007 as a facility within the park with elevation differences.
Aichi Prefecture renovated it last spring, giving it a new brown interior and exterior that evokes the world of fantasy science at the end of the nineteenth century.
This elevator tower is located within the park.
The elevator is free of charge for use by non-park park users, and is now available for early use.
