"Sadamisaki" in Ehime shows the beautiful scenic road with the lighthouse
Where is "Sadamisaki"?
If you find Sadamisaki Peninsula on the map, it is hard to forget this unique shape. It is the narrowest peninsula in Japan and stretches 50 km toward Kyushu, the third largest island of Japan. This place is surrounded by several oceans like Seto Inland Sea and Uwa Sea so the area is popular for fishing.
The beautiful contrast of blue ocean and white lighthouse
The white lighthouse stands on the cliff because rock reefs and fast tide made the ocean troublesome. After 100 years since the lighthouse was built, it became the symbol of Sadamisaki. There is the sidewalk to the foot of the lighthouse from the car park. It is about a 20 minute walk and wearing comfortable shoes are recommended. You can enjoy the scenic beauty of mountains and oceans. In addition, you can even find Kyushu in sunshiny days and the sunset view is marvelous.
