An Illusion of a Lighthouse at Shiriyazaki

The Shiriyazaki Lighthouse at the end of the Shimokita Peninsula in Aomori Prefecture was attacked at the end of World War Ⅱ and was completely destroyed under the ocean.
Engineer Murao died in the radio communication room on duty.


The following year,rumors were spread that a light could be seen in the window slightly lower than the destroyed light room.
Later,several fishermen came to the lighthouse and reported that when they were drifting with engine trouble in a deep fog,they were able to find the light of the lighthouse and were able to land on the near shore.
From the vessel operating company an inquiry came to ask about the light of the Shiriyazaki Lighthouse.
The stairs were damaged and it was impossible to climb the stairs to turn on the light at night,spreading rumors as a mysterious light.
In August,a temporary light was installed and the rumors disappeared.
But it is still believed that the spirit of the deceased engineer Murao turned on the light.
