|Muroto Misaki Lighthouse (Muroto city, Kochi prefecture)
date : April 1, 1899
| The light tower is an iron structure.
All construction materials were carried by sailboat to the tip of the cape and, after
offloading at Tsukimigahama below the lighthouse site, they were transported to the top by
means of steam power on specially-laid rails.
It is said that there was a huge pine tree called Tengu (long nosed goblin) pine at the construction site, which was used for identifying Muroto harbor on entry after a daimyo had left Kannoura after his alternate year residence in Edo. However, it was cut down for construction of the lighthouse.
