Rikuchukurosaki Lighthouse

Fudai Village

Northern Iwate

This concrete lighthouse stands on a cliff at an altitude of 130m in Kurosaki, which juts out into the Pacific Ocean, and has been selected as one of Japan's top 50 lighthouses. The range of light reaches approximately 30 nautical miles (approximately 55 km), the largest in Tohoku. Kurosaki, like Kitayamazaki located in Tanohata Village, is a scenic coastal terrace spot in Sanriku Fukko National Park. As a lighthouse on the 40th parallel of northern latitude, it is paired with the Nyudozaki Lighthouse at the northern tip of the Oga Peninsula in Akita Prefecture on the Sea of ​​Japan side. Its appearance on the quay is beautiful, and it is also affectionately known as the "Chalk Lighthouse." This lighthouse is loved not only by tourists but also by locals.
