This white-walled lighthouse, built at the tip of the Atsumi Peninsula, overlooks the black currents of the Pacific Ocean and the deep blue calm of Mikawa Bay. As opposed to the Kawashima Lighthouse which shines its light out over the open seas, the Cape Irago Lighthouse was built in 1929 to guide shipping lanes in coastal waters, and has continued to protect passing vessels ever since.
Such lighthouses built at the water's edge are rare in Japan, and in 1998 it was selected as one of the Best 50 Lighthouses of Japan, as a memorial to the proud role it has played, and today stands as a tourist symbol of the Irago Cape.
