Hinomisaki Lighthouse in Izumo A unique spot in Shimane Prefecture

Hinomisaki Lighthouse in Izumo A unique spot in Shimane Prefecture

The Hinomisaki Lighthouse in Izumo is definitely one of the more unique spots in all of Shimane prefecture. This massive white structure towers in stark contrast over the dark and rugged Northern coastline. It’s said to be the tallest lighthouse in all of Japan, and for 200yen, you can have yourself a climb to the top. While it’s open year round, be prepared for strong winds and cold floors. Here, like most places in Japan, you’ll be required to remove your outside footwear, and if you’ve got big gaijin feet like me, the tiny slippers provided to you will not fit. I declined use of these “half–slippers” and this being February, shivered my way up in only socks. After ascending the roughly forty meters to the top, take a firm grasp on your camera before stepping onto the outer platform!
