Good parking area nearby and short, nice walk to this lighthouse. After 68 steps there is a surprise, 13 very narrow and steep steps more. But view is really rewarding - and entrance costs only 200¥.

There is a lighthouse on the way to Shionomisaki shrine. It was built 120 years ago for safety of ships. There is a wonderful view of Shionomisaki cape and you really get the impression that the earth is round.
