Nojimazaki Lighthouse

"This white lighthouse, which was built at the southernmost tip of the Boso Peninsula in Chiba Prefecture in 1869, is also known as the ""Swan Lighthouse"" because of its shining white light. There is a walking trail around the lighthouse, and many people enjoy walking along the cape in the sea breeze."
