Lighthouse of the Week, April 30 - May 6, 2017: Tannowa Kō, Japan
This lighthouse is in the category of "unusual design" and "red". It's the Tannowa Kō lighthouse, in Sennan, which is supposed to resemble a sail to celebrate the sailing heritage of the town. Sennan is on Osaka Bay, across the Bay from Kobe and southwest of Osaka. It's basically at the southern outskirts of the Osaka urban region. It's 28 feet high and the light from the lighthouse is red, too.
There are only a couple of pictures of it, none from the water, but I did find two small ones taken from a distance.
