This white colored gorgeous lighthouse was selected as one of Japan's top 50 lighthouses. One of the lighthouses with the fewest visitors across the country.
It fell victim to the great earthquake of eastern Japan on March 11th of 2011, but after 9 months of hard work the lighthouse was restored to its former beauty. Visits were re-opened on February of 2014, and has since become a symbol of reconstruction against the great earthquake. Furthermore, this is also the stage of the late Hibari Misora, "Midare-gami", and at its foot you can see the Hibari no Sono, where tanka inscriptions, monuments, and the statue of the Eternal Hibari remain to this day.
