Irōzaki Light is a lighthouse located on a hill at the outermost extremity of Cape Irōzaki south of Minamiizu Town, Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan on the southernmost extremity of Izu Peninsula. It is located within the borders of the Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park.HistoryAlthough not one of the eight lighthouses stipulated specifically by the provisions of the Anglo-Japanese Treaty of Amity and Commerce of 1858, the Irōzaki Lighthouse was one of the earliest of the 26 lighthouses to be built in Meiji period Japan by British engineer Richard Henry Brunton, and was the tenth western style lighthouse to be completed in Japan. Its construction was given priority by the Meiji government due to the frequency of marine accidents off the Izu Peninsula. The original structure as designed by Brunton was octagonal, and was constructed of wood.The Irōzaki lighthouse was completed on October 5, 1871. This structure was destroyed during a wind storm on November 14, 1932 and was replaced with the current reinforced concrete structure on March 31, 1933. Its lens was upgraded and structure repaired in 1993.The Irōzaki Lighthouse is listed as one of the “50 Lighthouses of Japan” by the Japan Lighthouse Association. It is operated by the Japan Coast Guard.

  • It is the southernmost tip of the Izu! Is sunny quite warm today. However, because the wind is quite strong attention is scantily-clad. Views are spectacular. It was worth the good luck and walked. It is going to ride the tour boat when the time came.

  • Drizzle was in early February, was calm. Leave your car at the parking lot of the Harbour and his wife came and spent about 20 minutes. Changes to the mountain which is at first very beautiful coves, and opened the sea from the lighthouse. Say the steep mountain road. There is a toilet in front of the lighthouse, but no shop. Saw great views from the top of a rock jutting out into the sea. Also comes but the weather was too bad.
