 Interesting Spot

1st place you must visit is Inubosaki Lighthouse. This place is very interesting. You can see Pacific ocean surround this place. In this place also have different post box. Usually post box in Japan have red colour, but in this place you can see white postal box.

To enter the lighthouse you need 200 Yen. And inside the lighthouse you can see small museum history under this place. But explanation all in Japanese, so maybe you need tour guide if you want to know detail of it.

To reach the top of the lighthouse you must through 99 pieces of stairs. Little bit tired but when you reach the top I believe you will enjoy and see the beautiful sightseeing.
