White lighthouse stands at the tip of the cape

Hennasaki lighthouse is situated at the tip of the cape, which stands 24.5m high from ground level and 43m above sea level. The lighthouse is open for visitors only 150 yen of entrance fee, so it’s better to climb up to the top when you visit there. You will enjoy amazing 360-degree view from the tower.

The walking trail is a field of flowers

There is a walking trail from the parking to the lighthouse, and visitors enjoy seasonal flowers walking the path.  White Easter lily (Teppo yuri) in spring and yellow or orange colored Gaillardia (Tenningiku) in summer will bloom beautifully everywhere.
