Cape Muroto Lighthouse

Lighthouse built in the Meiji period overlooking the Pacific ocean.

Cape Muroto Lighthouse

Below Hotsumisaki-ji temple is a lighthouse, built in the Meiji period. Despite attempts to disguise it during WWII, its lense was damaged by strafing and the current lense is a more recent type. When it stops rotating, it’s always aligned north-south to prevent damage by the sun.

The contrast of the elegant white tower against the blue Pacific makes a dramatic scene.
