Izumo Hinomisaki Lighthouse, Izumo

(240+ reviews on the web)
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. Arrange your visit to Izumo Hinomisaki Lighthouse and discover more family-friendly attractions in Izumo using our Izumo holiday planner.
