In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), various facilities around Tokyo may change their operating days or hours. In addition, some events may be canceled or postponed. Please check official facility or event websites for the latest updates and information.
The Izu-misaki Lighthouse was built in 1909. It's known for its unusual square shape and the views it offers of the surrounding ocean and islands. From the lighthouse, you can see Niijima and Kozushima Islands, and on clear days, as far as Mt. Fuji. This spot is particularly popular for its sunset and nighttime views.
You can walk from the lighthouse down to the coast and there are benches perfect for gazing at the endless blue ocean.
For updated information on opening hours, closings, prices, and more, please check the official website or ask the facility directly.
