Taro Okamoto gained national attention with his Tower of the Sun, which debuted at the 1970 Osaka Expo. The theme of the event was "progress and harmony", but Okamoto believed Japanese were losing their humanity and becoming slaves to machines as their economy boomed. This tower was an important entity considering the existence of humanity. After the Expo closed, the Tower fell into disrepair. Having passed nearly half a century now, Mr. Akiomi Hirano, the leader of the restoration project, is working hard to revive the Tower, believing the artwork's message is even more important today. The restoration of the Tower is to revive the "Monster of Japanese ancient Jomon period".
