Tsunoshima Lighthouse was first lit in 1876, and it is the first large Western-style lighthouse on the Sea of Japan. Even 130 years after its construction, it is still lit every single day without fail. The view from the top of the spiral staircase of the vast sea spreading out below is truly a spectacular sight. Nearby is the Tsunoshima Lighthouse Park, where locals often go to relax. At the Lighthouse Memorial Hall, constructed in what was once a staff break room, visitors can learn about the history of the area and lighthouses around Japan.
