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.

Izumo Hinomisaki Lighthouse Reviews
日御碕灯台の駐車場・バス停から歩いて数分のところにあります。 灯台資料室は無料ですが、灯台に上るのは大人で200円かかります。 灯台はレンガ造りのもので日本最大の大きさを誇り、 外から見ても圧巻です。 真っ白で綺麗な灯台なので、晴れた日には最高のロケーションになりますよ！ more »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!
日ノ御埼神社から歩いて向かいました。坂道ですが、道は整備されています。 閉館間際の２０分前に到着しましたが、チケットも購入でき、階段に挑みました。 螺旋階段で急なため、膝の痛いかたは厳しいと思います。はしごに近い感覚でロングスカートは、大変危険です。 下りは特に気をつけてください。 見晴らしはとてもよかったです。 more »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.
