Voted the most beautiful scene in Japan, this favorite tourist spot attracts both locals and foreigners year-round, displaying nature at its best. A white octagonal-shape lighthouse and an observatory built at 147 m (482 ft) above the sea level gives the opportunity to take photos overlooking the bay.

  • Today horizon by broadening views and has become a tourist attraction, but local man is famous as a suicide.

  • Naming streets, lies the ocean spot can feel the roundness of the size of the seas, earth should be bad speaking, just as it is. I think if you like a magnificent view. If you like richly varied landscape, might be a tad disappointing.

  • Nice view. Best at twilight as in picture
  • Great scenery but the way to the lighthouse was closed for maintenance. Couldn't get up close.
  • Good view but the weather wasn't the best when we went. Few tourists there so it's enjoyable
  • has to have a decent weather
  • The earth is round and the sea is blue
