The Nakatomi Plaza is a high-rise office building in Century City, Los Angeles, California. It houses the US branch headquarters of the Nakatomi Corporation, Japanese company. The building itself is called the Nakatomi Tower.

This describes the setting of arguable one of the best Christmas Movies of all time – Die Hard. The movie launched Bruce Willis into an action movie superstar.

In reality, the Nakatomie Plaza is called Fox Plaza and it is actually really located in Century City, Los Angeles, California. With it’s 34 floors and a height of 493-foot (150 m) this skyscraper is one of the tallest in Century City. The building was completed in February of 1987 and now houses the headquarters of 20th Century Fox. Their studios are right next door. Unfortunately, the building is not open to the public and no public tours are available.
