Clannad After Story - Lighthouse

In episode 18 of Clannad After Story, The Ends of the Earth, Tomoya meets his grandmother. This happens near the real life location of Tappisaki Lighthouse in Sotogahama. Unfortunately after Tappi-Kaitei Station closed down in 2014 it's quite hard to get to this place. You'll need to take a train to Mimmaya Station and then catch a bus the rest of the way.

The bus stops at a nearby parking lot, so you'll need to take these stairs up to the lighthouse area.

The round platform in the background is the same.

At this point you can view Hokkaido in the distance on a good day. Even if this is not the end of the earth it is on the very edge of Honshu.
