This beautiful card is from Japan.
I live far from the sea, i don't get to see lighthouses that often, so it's always nice when i get a lighthouse card.

"Hinomisaki, which is located north of Izumo Shrine, is a port town that faces the Sea of Japan where blue sky and clear sea water are beautiful. It is a part of the Daisen Oki National Park. The Izumo Hinomisaki Lighthouse, which stands on a part of the coast, is 38.8m high, and is the highest of stone-build lighthouse in Asia. Visitors can pay 200-yen admission fee and go up to the upper deck, where a beautiful 360-degree panoramic view of the Sea of Japan, as well as boulders and cliffs of Owashi beach, can be enjoyed. The lighthouse was selected as one of the World's One Hundred Most Historic Lighthouses. Walking trail has been developed around the lighthouse, from where the beauty of the Sea of Japan can be observed. The sun setting on the Sea of Japan is worth a look." - in:
