Immaculate light house and museum on the cliff looking onto the sea at the southernmost piece of land on Honshu. Climb the steps and have a good look out with a refreshing sea breeze cooling in the hot sun. Well worth a visit if just to feel the breeze.

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¥.

The most south point of main island Japan. Rent a electronic bike from tourisit information station and went there. Quiet place. Quite some motocycle there who might making a whole circle around Japan.

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.
