Izumo Hinomisaki Lighthouse, Izumo

4.2
#3 of 36 in Sightseeing in Izumo
Historic Site Landmark
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.

  • Of the local and the advice. Sun top 100 inasa Beach more than recommend several times, here. Inasa where fall sunset at breakwater and fishing up there I think. This is where prior here that was dedicated to the God of the Sun, feel the grandeur of the intact nature and enters the room where the shrine visits after we go. Is also like a diving submarine. Search for Aqua Studio below.

Where to stay in Izumo

Hotels in Izumo cluster around the railway station, mostly on the northern side. Get a map at the station for the location and prices of a few inexpensive ryokans and family-operated bed and breakfasts scattered around the city. A number of mid-range business establishments lie in the western part of town and south of the railway station. Capacity in the city is limited, so consider exploring the wider selection of accommodations on the eastern shore of Lake Shinji, some 30 km (18 mi) away from Izumo.
