Shimen Dist., New Taipei City


Fugui Cape Lighthouse was built in 1897 at Fugui Cape, Shimen District, New Taipei City. Originally named as "Fuji," the octagonal lighthouse was first built with iron. It was in 1962 that it was rebuilt with cement. Standing at Taiwan's northernmost tip, the lighthouse is characterized by black and white stripes.
Fugui Lighthouse is the second lighthouse constructed by the Japanese in Taiwan during the colonial times, as a part of a submarine communication cables and navigation facilities plan. Due to the area's geography and climate, in autumn and winter, thick fogs are commonplace. Thus, the lighthouse is equipped with "fog horns" which send signals to boats on the sea. The horns were the first signaling devices ever established in Taiwan.
