Izumo Hinomisaki Lighthouse, Izumo

4.3
Climb to the top of the towering Izumo Hinomisaki Lighthouse to witness panoramic views of the ocean and rocks below. The masonry structure stands an impressive 43.65 m (143 ft) high and is said to be the tallest in the country. For a small fee you can enter the lighthouse, but keep in mind that you'll have to leave your shoes at the door, so consider bringing along some thick socks if it's a cold day. Those with a fear of heights will want to steel themselves, as the combined height of the structure and the cliff it sits on make for a dizzying view down to the ocean.

  • It is a few minutes' walk from the parking and bus stops of Hinogoko Lighthouse. The lighthouse resource room is free, but it costs 200 yen for adults to climb the lighthouse. The lighthouse is made of brick and boasts the largest size in Japan, and it is a masterpiece even if it sees from the outside. Because it is a pure white and beautiful lighthouse, it will be the best location on a sunny day!

  • We walked from Hino-Misai Shrine. It is a slope, but the road is maintained. We arrived 20 minutes before closing time, but we could buy tickets and we took the stairs. I think that the person who hurts the knee is severe because it is steep in the spiral stairs. A long skirt is very dangerous in the sense near the ladder. Be especially careful when you go down. The view was very good.

  • A lovely landmark set in a pleasant bit of greenery atop the often windy cliffs. If you have a car, great. If you don't, you can still reach the lighthouse via a local bus service. You can climb to the top if you pay the entrance fee, though it is not necessary to enjoy your visit. There are a few shops and restaurants (offering seafood - you'll smell it before you see it) on the walk from the car park to the lighthouse. The coastline on the drive up is very pretty.
  • Blue sky and white lighthouse is charming.
