Izumo Hinomisaki Lighthouse, Izumo

4.2
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.

    It is a lighthouse stands at the tip of hinomisaki, 東洋1. You can climb inside. Once you experience values. Scenic and weather permitting, the island looks good.

    It is a white Lighthouse stands on the cliffs. 200 yen, climb onto the scenery is the best! Stairs are quite steep and narrow so watch out.

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.
