I saw several times Japan sea, but this time I saw it in Izumo. This was the best view of my life. I felt a little tired when visiting the coastline but when I see it, I started relaxed all my stress worries are gone. I feel refreshed and charged full of energy. This place is magic and I would love to recommend it. I always remember this place.

Seeing the lighthouse was my childhood dream. It is the first time to see the coastal area with the lighthouse. An amazing and unforgettable moment was going with my family and I felt a calm condition. The sound of the wave, the unlimited sea, and tweets of catbirds could totally refresh my mind. I could receive new energy.

First of all, I'm a huge fan of water. I've lived at the beach many a summer, so I naturally gravitate toward the ocean. The lighthouse at Hinomisaki, I believe, is the tallest in all of Japan. You can climb it for less than $5, and is well worth it! Unfortunately, you must remove your shoes, like everywhere else in Japan, and if you've got a 30cm foot like me, the slippers won't fit. I went up in my socks and it was a rather cold climb... (bring booties or thick socks if climbing in the cold!!!)

The view from the top is great, but in all honesty, it's not the most beautiful coastline. It's rugged, and the water can be rather dark. I'm sure it depends on the season. If you're lucky, you'll catch some migrating birds like we did on our visit. Their massive flock made for some entertaining sights.

You can walk all along the edge of these giant cliffs here, no barriers or walls. Parents, keep close watch on your kids. Drunk people...well, you probably want to keep away from here. But you can bring your fishing rod if you like.

I'll post some pictures, so please have a look. There are lots of little shops that make up a tiny, miniature town near the lighthouse. The town alone is worth the visit in my mind. Something like out of a movie set. Here you can buy fresh catch, souvenirs, and other snacks. If you do visit, you'll be one of very few in the world to say so.

I provided a Japanese site to Trip Advisor, but here is some information in English! Tough to come by in Shimane sometimes...Enjoy.

It is one of the greatest spots where I have been so far, the combination of sea, cliffs, green scenery is so relaxing!
The sunset scene is unbelievable, this is the best time to go there.
The magnificent smell of the sea is still in my mind <3

The lighthouse area has a nice little hiking area in nature which presents you the beautiful view of the ocean and a good chance of spotting some birds of prey. You can be there for beautiful sunset, which I missed as I had to catch the last bus back to town.

I loveeee this lighthouse. I was very excited when we plan going here. And as expected the sea breeze was very great, the view of the japan sea, the waves hitting the rocks below, and of course the beautiful light house that stands tall. I would love going to this place again 🥰

If you want to feel the touch of nature please come and visit this place. I went there with my family one week ago. When we entered the park and walked inside I felt my self walking inside the famous Japanese anime movie Ponyo (ポニョ). It was an amazing nature mixed between the forest and the sea. We felt like getting refreshed for more one year in advance. My wife likes the see very much, she asked why you don't bring us here before.

Around there, also was a very high and great Lighthouse. I surprised when I was told even it was built more than 100 years ago, but it is still working till now.

I love the ocean and very much enjoyed out trip to the IZumo lighthouse park
The beautiful rocky coast was very dramatic against the blue ocean and the very tall white lighthouse. I was a great area to walk around in and enjoy the different views of the ocean and the wind sculpted trees. Very pretty area!
