Cape Ahizuri in the southernmost tip of Shikoku is located in Tosashimizu City, Kochi Prefecture. The lighthouse made of chalk on the cliffs of Cape Ashizuri is one of the largest lighthouses in Japan and has been the guardian of ships traveling offshore since it was lit in 1914. On a cruise around the Cape, you can see huge caves, strange rocks, and the wilderness created by the rough waves of the Kuroshio Current create spectacular scenery that cannot be seen from the land.
