Izumo Hinomisaki Lighthouse, Izumo
(4.2/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
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. Arrange your visit to Izumo Hinomisaki Lighthouse and discover more family-friendly attractions in Izumo using our Izumo holiday planner.

  • I stopped by after hinomisaki shrine and prayed. Ago the cliff, then I thought that the location was a two-hour drama came out lol. Beautiful weather cloud not in the kite flying so high and the 11-I don't think that was a short time, but a nice change of pace.

  • I went to the lighthouse several times but had never gone for reasons of time and yasumi! This time I got up, but due to the time it was not a good experience! It's fall and the wind up there is unbearable! The view is wonderful, but hard to enjoy with the wind! The ascent is by ladder, you have to remove your shoes (so it's nice to go Socks), the descent is much more difficult than the ascent as the spiral stairs and narrow! But I guess it's worth a go, because the landscape compensates!!! Rising costs only 200 yen.

  • This is the place I'd come if I went to Izumo. Early in the morning to Izumo-Izumo near lunch-tomb of Izumo no okuni-inasa Beach-hinomisaki lighthouse and turns around and exactly what sunset would give the. But (depending on the season) we left the inasa Beach by rental car. The narrow streets of the cliffs uneune and within 20 minutes of the lighthouse large parking lot. Also the toilet. Through lined with souvenir shops and eateries in about 5 minutes you will see of the Cretaceous. Railings or place and trails around the lighthouse, the Japan Sea you can enjoy the views, so please note called want. The wind is strong. Unfortunately on the day while cloudy skies in the back was a blue sky give something beautiful, and little regret. Do not decline in value but still beautiful standing lighthouse. It corresponds to the 5th floor in the building, shrimp bibiru wife pay the 200 yen, up to the lighthouse. A steep narrow staircase is in the slim Lighthouse will hard on the elderly and small children. Lighthouse lookout view is nice, but extremely windy and not afraid of heights, I was a little scared. It was better than I was looking from the outside. Take off your shoes and climb. At 150 yen asked Memorial commemorative pin badge. Here Japan Lighthouse 50 election (with a big lens lighthouse, only five had the first one), around Lighthouse history Japan elected to the lighthouse of the world top 100 most active in a part of Daisen-Oki National Park you can enjoy nature and the beauty of the lighthouse itself. This is the place if you come to Izumo hanam.
