Yoroizaki Lighthouse鎧埼灯台

Lighthouse

This limestone lighthouse was built on the edge of Kuzaki. The “oyashio” and “kuroshio” currents meet in the surrounding area, making for treacherous waters, so this lighthouse was built to protect fishing vessels. The interior is not accessible, but visitors can view the sea from the structure. Right nearby is a rocky stretch called “Yoroizaki,” from which it gets its name. Legend has it that the name “Yoroizaki” was chosen when Yamahito no Mikoto, seeking the place where Amaterasu was enshrined, visited Kuzaki and removed his yoroi (meaning armor) on the promontory.

          Spread across the eastern side of the Kii Peninsula, Mie prefecture boasts hundreds of kilometers of pretty coastline comprising the oyster-rich Toba city and Shima National Park all the way down to Kumano, a city that marks the beginning of part of the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage, which runs into neighboring Wakayama prefecture. However, Mie is best known for the Ise Jingu Shinto shrine inland, one of the oldest and largest shrines in the country.
