  • In 10 minutes by car from the secret, there is also a car park (charges apply). Lighthouse and the Cretaceous say part of the head is clean white, was very strong.

  • Sea horizon from the lighthouse Park and sunset is very beautiful. Who went to the sea side on the left when you go by car parking as close as soon as possible, so good.

  • In 1876, in the Scots for old stone lighthouse, 26 m in height. You can pay a parking fee of 300 yen and 200 yen entrance fee into the inside of the lighthouse, climb up to the top. Only stairs to climb to the entrance. A sign hung more than one. It will often claim that do not much lift. Looks big from the outside, but inside of the lighthouse body is made alone almost narrow spiral staircase. Worth a look nice, view from the top. Lighting units to illuminate the rocks beside the lighthouse grounds and now doubles as entrance fee collection, concrete towers, further Memorial lighthouse, to study and enjoy.

  • Landscape here was being moved from the Akiyoshi plateau, the weather was pleasant, but stops rain from tsunoshima Island Bridge and arrive at blue sky began to spread. Sunset location was the most fun, but blue skies and white lighthouse in the very picturesque landscape in itself 10 minutes this place lunchtime. Good luck could make memories to come across situations and taking a wedding photo, left a deep impression and the sunset was also firmly onto camera and memory.
