Kyoga Misaki Lighthouse経ケ岬灯台

Observation Tower

A chalk lighthouse standing on Cape Kyogamisaki, the northernmost point of the Kinki region. The lighthouse is one of only six in the country to use a first class lens and has been selected as one of Japan’s three best lighthouses. The lighthouse was erected here on a cliff 140 meters above the sea in 1898. Famous for its scenic beauty, visitors can get a sweeping view of a rias coastline comprised of the deep azure of the Sea of Japan and countless curious-looking stones interwoven with pillars of basalt. The area is also a rich natural habitat where falcons are confirmed to live.

          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.
