Takamatsu’s Red Lighthouse


I’ve already mentioned it here as well as posted a few pictures, but never gave any details. Here are some.

The Red Lighthouse of Takamatsu is located at the end of a 1800 ft long breakwater. It was built in 1998 with the rest of the Sunport. It’s not very high, only 46 ft, but it’s the only lighthouse in the world to be built almost entirely of glass, in such a way that at night, it’s the entire lighthouse that emits light, red light.

It’s also my entry for Show Me Japan this week-end.
