Old Sakai Lighthouse

The old Sakai Lighthouse was built in the 10th year of the Meiji Era (1877) at the tip of the old Sakai Port, rising 11.3 meters high. It is one of the oldest wooden Western-style lighthouses still remaining, along with the old Anorizaki Lighthouse and Fukuura Lighthouse. This lighthouse was built at the same time when lighthouses were being built in various places around the time of the opening of Japan with the arrival of Commodore Perry, so that foreign ships could navigate safely.
