Built during the Meiji era, the Inubosaki Lighthouse is located at the easternmost point of the Kanto region, standing tall for over a century. The Japanese government designated it a "National Important Cultural Property" and opened it for tourism. There are various explanations for why it was named "Inubosaki." One theory is that a loyal dog waited for the return of its owner at the cape and barked for seven days and seven nights. Another theory is that nearby sea lions can be heard "barking" at the sun. Yet another theory is that the lighthouse had a booming whistle in the early days to guide passing ships through dense fog. The noise sounded like a dog barking.
