Quoted from the guideboard:

"This lighthouse was first enlighted in June, 1870 (Meiji 3). It's the oldest made of stone as a flash lighthouse in Japan. Rechard Hennry Buranton, an English engineer was the director and made the plan. Narcissus around the lighthouse were brought to Japan from England by the English engineers and planted to enjoy them."
