Exploring the Hinomisaki Lighthouse

Japan’s tallest masonry lighthouse and ranked in the top 100 historic lighthouses in the world, Hinomisaki Lighthouse is one of the more unique sites in Shimane Prefecture. Situated in a quaint fishing village overlooking the rugged coastal terrain, this iconic guidepost towers 43 meters in height – 63 meters above sea level – and has been aiding maritime navigation since 1903.
