About this sight

This lighthouse is one of eight lighthouses built in accordance with the Edo Treaty, signed between the US, the UK, France, the Netherlands and the Japanese government in 1866. As the first lighthouse in Japan made from steel, it was carefully maintained up until the atomic bombing of Nagasaki. The lighthouse was fully restored after World War II.
