Hitachi Lighthouse

Posted by admin on 5th May 2008

The Hitachi lighthouse is a beautiful work of man and is quite elegant.  It’s tiled siding is quite unusual and allows the sunlight to reflect beautifully off of it.

Surrounded by a lovely play park for the kids, Hitachi lighthouse is a nice place to take the family for a picnic or just to spend the day lazily lying on the grass.   A statue in the park is dedicated to a great Japanese fisherman who modernized Japanese methodologies of fishing and  is at the point of the park in front of the lighthouse.

Parking is limited and generally only enough space for about 20 cars  is available but most people park on the road by the park.
