Japanese Lighthouse Images

As a maritime island nation, Japan has more than 3200 lightouses ranging from older Japanese-style ones made of wood or stone, to more modern art deco edifices as well as the most common (unfortunately) generic, functional boxes. The first western-style lighthouse in Japan was Kannonzaki, overlooking Tokyo Bay on the Miura Peninsula as one of Japan's most important shipping lanes.
