Situated at the tip of the Tango Peninsula, this cape is the northernmost point of the Kinki region. Surrounding the cape are precipitous cliffs comprised of rock pillars with columnar joints in which cracks and fissures can be seen. The Kyogamisaki Cape lighthouse standing atop those cliffs offers spectacular scenery that has been selected as one of Kyoto’s top 100 views. The appearance of the French-made lighthouse with its white walls is beautiful and it uses a metal-halide lamp whose light beam reaches a distance of 55 kilometers. It also uses a first-grade lens of which there are only six in all of Japan.

Kyoto Main Areas
Its wooden tea houses, shuffling geisha, and spiritual sights have seen Kyoto hailed as the heart of traditional Japan, a world apart from ultramodern Tokyo. Despite being the Japanese capital for over a century, Kyoto escaped destruction during World War II, leaving behind a fascinating history which can be felt at every turn, from the fully gold-plated Kinkakuji Temple down to traditional customs such as geisha performances and tea ceremonies, which are still practiced to this day.
