Monument Arch of Neutrality Reviews
IN keeping with the country's stance of absolute neutrality this, this tall and unique structure is a fitting reminder. more »
永世中立国として認められた記念に建てられたそうです。エレベーターで上れるらしいですが、私が行った時はエレベーターは動いてないと言われました。いつ動いているのかは不明です。フォトスポットとして良いと思います。 more »It seems to have been built in commemoration of being recognized as a neutral country for a long time. It seems to be able to go up by the elevator, but when I went, it was said that the elevator was not moving. It is not known when it is working. I think it is good as a photo spot.
