Kiihino Misaki Lighthouse紀伊日ノ御埼灯台
This white-walled lighthouse stands 17 meters tall at the tip of the Kii Peninsula's Hino Misaki Cape. It used to be in Mihama Town, Hidaka County, but fissures appeared in the surrounding ground and it was relocated to its current spot in 2017 as a safety measure. The location is part of Enju Kaigan Prefectural Natural Park, and the area around the lighthouse is known as Hinomisaki Park. There is a haiku monument carved with Takahama Kyoshi's work, as well as a hill dedicated to Johannes Knudsen.
