The Cape Nyudozaki lighthouse is famous, having been designated as one of the 50 Great Lighthouses of Japan. First lit in 1898, the 28m tall lighthouse emits a white light every 15 seconds which can be seen from 37km away. As you climb Cape Nyudozaki to reach the lighthouse, you get a beautiful view of the beach and Mizushima Rocks off the coast. The lighthouse also contains an exhibition room where you can learn about the lighthouse’s history.
