  • That was very impressed that the wind is horrible. On a windy day was 1-year-old son can't walk straight. Is he all hair is unkempt and fun photo photograph.... (Lol) stairs inside the Lighthouse is very steep and narrow, is for the elderly and small children 10 minutes please note. Exhibition Hall on the first floor there's old Lighthouse mirror, entranced in the parent and child.

  • On a weekday, but I thought or I visit in the middle of the tourist heavy reviews! It is cumbersome to find parking, did not go after all. Not matter if other people in trouble and had to drive around this area is crowded, so I want to go through.

  • In the Chamber and outside is a small lighthouse located bunch just looks from Yokosuka on Tokyo Bay and on the other side. It is recommended to stop the car at the parking lot near the suzaki Lighthouse visit.  From parked cars through the narrow streets to get to the lighthouse. Well this Lighthouse overlooks Tokyo Bay and on the other side of the Miura peninsula, visit the weather was good that color was beautiful.  Is maybe the local kindergarten and visited here, a good time was had. Nice views facing the sea for sure charm of suzaki Lighthouse itself, but where the lighthouse and ship that is standing.  You can always see the stunning views of the lighthouse I feel envious. I would never try too good?.

  • Nice lookout at sunset.
  • I think hidden scenic spot. Overlooking the Miura peninsula and Mount Fuji in fine weather. So hot is the Tateyama bus is 1 hour notice is required, for the time being, considering there are better acted. And while you're going because the best views from the suzaki shrine near nice.

  • There are many great views. If the weather looks in front of Mount Fuji. I think parking is parking fee is 200 yen, three with gravel, but not much different from a distance. And too far into private land and can not pass through even a u-turn so watch out!
