TOPOsezaki Lighthouse

Osezaki Lighthouse

By Weekender Editor

Find the Goto Islands’ Osezaki Lighthouse standing in all its splendid white solitude. The current lighthouse dates back to 1971, but the original structure was erected in 1879 (and part of it has become a permanent exhibit at the Museum of Maritime Science in Odaiba, Tokyo). A hiking trail (1.2km one way) suitable for beginner to intermediate level hikers, leads to the lighthouse. Make sure you’re camera ready – once you’ve reached the lighthouse platform, you won’t want to leave without photographic evidence of the spectacular views.
