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. Find out how to plan Izumo trip without stress by asking Inspirock to help create an itinerary.

  • Forever blue sky, the distant horizon, and comfortable. Climb up to the top, just great. I was very moved when you see Venice to the lighthouse at sunset the sun sets behind the horizon.

  • Rose thought Lighthouse is returned do not enter when you come to the old lighthouse, we climb to the Summit and return home. It is very steep stairs with stair, and no confidence in the strength. (Steep like a ladder. ) Middle grueling climb to almost give up, special broth and rest, we have climbed. Scenery is great climb look was great.

  • Izumo Taisha Shrine to place it when you go a little further afield! It is a lighthouse and craggy footing firmly standing there! I can felt the rough waters of the Japan Sea to wander around!
