It is a place where one can perceive the roundness of the earth first-hand.
This lighthouse stands at Daiosaki, a dangerous area of ocean dividing the Kumano Sea from the Enshu Sea which was greatly feared by sailors along with the Yoroizaki in Toba. The Daiosaki lighthouse is also open to the public, and from its top one can see the town of Nakiri with its beautiful stone slopes directly below, and Kamishima and the Atsumi Peninsula across the vast expanse of sea. Since ships approaching from the offing first appear by the tips of their masts, it is a place where one can perceive the roundness of the earth first-hand.
