The description on the horn of Cape Kamui !
Here I post the translation of this sign on the horn of Cape Kamui as I promised yesterday.
Here we introduce the harsh hard life of the lighthouse- keepers who exert their best efforts for the safety of the ships around the clock with the spirit of keeping the light at the northern end of Japan, as well as the respects paid by the people in this area.
"I bear a grudge against you, deities ! Why do you stop females ?" is part of lyrics from the popular folk song of Esashi Town that full-flourished with herrings fishing.
This Cape Kamui shows its beautiful scenery to the visitors but it had been known as the most dangerous three cape in Hokkaido.
When the lighthouse was established in 1988, three lighthouse-keepers were worked and commuted from the nearest community that was 4 km away from the lighthouse, going up and down on the ragged trail to the horn.
To be continued.
