Izumo Hinomisaki Lighthouse, Izumo

Lighthouse · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
Climb to the top of the towering Izumo Hinomisaki Lighthouse to witness panoramic views of the ocean and rocks below. The masonry structure stands an impressive 43.65 m (143 ft) high and is said to be the tallest in the country. For a small fee you can enter the lighthouse, but keep in mind that you'll have to leave your shoes at the door, so consider bringing along some thick socks if it's a cold day. Those with a fear of heights will want to steel themselves, as the combined height of the structure and the cliff it sits on make for a dizzying view down to the ocean.

  • A lovely landmark set in a pleasant bit of greenery atop the often windy cliffs. If you have a car, great. If you don't, you can still reach the lighthouse via a local bus service. You can climb to the top if you pay the entrance fee, though it is not necessary to enjoy your visit. There are a few shops and restaurants (offering seafood - you'll smell it before you see it) on the walk from the car park to the lighthouse. The coastline on the drive up is very pretty.
  • Blue sky and white lighthouse is charming.
