Charms of Minamiboso (9) Ishido-ji Temple


Longing for spring, one of the signs we look forward to seeing is the white or pink plum blossoms. If you want to enjoy the fragrance of the early spring, the plum orchard at Ishido-ji temple in Maruyama, Minamiboso City, is the one you should visit. The temple, said to be founded in 708, boasts the longest history as a Buddhist temple in Minamiboso. The main hall, the pagoda, and other buildings we see today date back to the 16th century, and have been designated as national cultural assets. Located on a hill in the country side, visitors can enjoy the natural beauty that surrounds the temple not only in early spring, but all year round.

Charms of Minamiboso (8) Nojimazaki Lighthouse


Nojimazaki point is located on the southernmost tip of the Boso peninsula, and has been an important marine traffic waypoint for ships coming into Tokyo Bay. Nojimazaki lighthouse is one of the eight western style lighthouses built by the Meiji Government in 1870s. The original lighthouse was destroyed by The Great Kanto Earthquake in 1923, and was replaced by the lighthouse you see today. With a small admission fee, you can go up the stairs for a panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean.
