Cape Irago, Tahara
(4/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
Considered one of the top 50 lighthouses in the country, the snow-white beacon at Cape Irago stands vigil on a dramatic point, looking out over the Pacific Ocean. Built in 1926, the lighthouse's stark white architecture contrasts with the deep blue of the sea, giving way to great views of land across the water. From here, explore either the sheltered sandy beaches on the north side of the peninsula, known for their good swimming, or the wilder Pacific south side, furnished with dunes and attracting surfers. Look out for the "lover's sanctuary," a spot overlooking the sea where lovers write notes on padlocks and seal them to bring their relationships good fortune. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Cape Irago by using our Tahara vacation planner.

  • After Ise Shrine, crossed on the ferry. Free parking is available. Was crowded with surfers and birdwatchers. Lined by stores will eat clams, clam you are looking for a shop that turned out to Baked clam 3 500 yen, ISE Oharai Town was much larger and cheaper. Large scallops and clams though, himself without bitterness, and delicious. Did not like sand. I walked a little because there is a promenade along the coast. White crest on a windy day it was so large and powerful. It seems now a Mecca for migratory birds. Also a number of people said birds of prey that the grey-faced buzzard is the outfit you can stay at car, set up camera or telescope, and birding. Did not know the difference because the bird was flying pretty high up on the unfamiliar, certainly drew Tobi and unpolished bird can feather ring.

  • From between the rocks there are lots of rocks strewn down the cliffs of Italian good Lake peninsula and go to the coast, and surge coming coming to sandy beaches. It was a scary landscape.
