Project 365 - Day 13

Some exploring of the island led me to a lighthouse on the edge of a cliff. Cape Zanpa lighthouse is centrally located on the western coast of the island, but its views do not disappoint. The cliffs are high and made of volcanic rock, which makes sense because there are a lot of volcanoes on and around the islands. The lighthouse itself is about 100 feet tall. It's a fairly new lighthouse only having been built in 1974, but if you want the history of it, you have to check out the museum for yourself for the heft price of 200 yen or 2 USD. The water and wind were surprisingly calm and it was about 70 degrees out, which made it pretty comfortable for adventuring. This is definitely a location I will be returning to to take photos of sunsets, clients, and unforgiving waters.
