The calming Cape Irozaki has been on site for over 200 years. It was constructed by British Engineer Richard Henry Brunton.
When it got destroyed by an unexpected strong wind storm in 1932, it was immediately re-structured just 4 months after.
In 1993, when another re-structuring was done, the architectural approach that the management did saw an upgrade in lens and various materials.
The Irozaki Lighthouse, which is located in the cape, was highly praised in Japan Lighthouse Association's the "50 Lighthouses of Japan" piece.
Here are the things to look forward to in Cape Irozaki:
- Irozaki Lighthouse (It gives a great view of the Pacific Ocean and the greenery around the area)
- Iro Shrine (A classic, historical Japanese shrine. It's built into the rocks at the ti)
- The view from the steep cliffs. In the top cliff, there's a wide view of islands Mikomoto, Izu, Oshima, and many more.
Take a train that'll pass the Izukyu-Shimoda Station. From there, ride a bus that's bound to Irozaki and get off at Irozakiko-guchi. Cape Irozaki will then be just a 5-10-minute walk away.
Opened from 9:00am to 3:30pm
