  • It is like the title when I was elementary school, on field trips or excursions to inubosaki Lighthouse has been this year in year of the dog on a bike to choshi by 1 night 2 day trip go out to you. That's what decades Buri inubosaki lighthouse. I think what was heard and became "inubou" in place of farewell and the dog was called Minamoto no Yoshitsune in the Kamakura period, the dog barked. After enjoying lunch in the shops of the fishing port, go to terminal station tokawa-tokawa station at choshi Electric Railway, take a walk in 2-3 km walk to the inubou thing was. Rainy day, unfortunately. The atmosphere is fold. Pacific Ocean is amazing and is an exciting as usual is because bad weather during a quiet feel like there is some spooky punch. There are trails and lighthouse to aim while walking by the sea, in the Middle really shoreline (Rock) so we walked there to inubosaki lighthouse. Feel the power, partly through abolition Hall was already large hotel, but a bit cold feeling in coming up waves on a huge rock scene. Does not have climbed the stairs of the last! Inubosaki Lighthouse is. I wanted to go toilet but I pay 200 yen, once inside the lighthouse. Without such an elevator, there are altogether 99 steps of stairs. When he passes a very narrow stairway so faced with absolutely no help. It's necessary to put ago people are carrying a backpack, such as the back and twist. These stairs, quite hard. And somehow climb down and passing out Hendon and views of the Pacific. Was raining inopportune power is alive and well. At the top of the Lighthouse is 360 degrees around. and it is not only the sea, overlooking the city. Clientele is from your old children, until a couple variety. Down and enjoy the Vista one kind is fine it actually hard. It seemed like when you finally return under the further falling rain. Unfortunately though, no toilet. This pass was like a museum on the first floor. Inubosaki Lighthouse before., such as motorcycle and car parking, and a souvenir shop and a restaurant, but this day was all free. At a quick pace walks choshi Dentetsu inubo station. All time 30 minutes or so?. Small received a much bigger impression when the child turned out, actually this time I climbed. It's the impression that may have been in the invigorating feeling good weather overcast weather so a small lighthouse. Actually walk to the nearest inubo station about 10 minutes. I think it easy to go from choshi city bike or car. It was good anyways Buri in decades to come to inubosaki lighthouse in the year of the dog. I have slipped into decades ago, childhood's.

  • Well kept lighthouse with a long history. There’s a museum on grounds and ran by the Japanese Coast Guard which you should visit if you’re here. There’re nearby restaurants, snack bars and the usual spread of stores catering to visitors. Parking space can be packed at certain dates/times.
  • The place is ok. Look at the Pacific ocean. Long stairs to climb. Interesting to learn about light houses.
  • Not only the Light house location is good, Peaceful, but the journey from Chiba is very relaxing after crowdiness of Tokyo.
  • Nice views of the coast. If you go down to the beach you can also enjoy interesting rock formations. Parking spaces are limited, so be prepared for a wait.
  • Very beautiful sea view up there
