Five years ago I have been first time in Chumpon, Southern Thailand with a large harbour ! I have made severel pics and uploaded to World of Lighthouses.Alex Trabas wrote me at this time, I have missed the Admiralty F2924.2 and F2924.3. So I returned recently again to Chumpon to make pics from the missed lights. Now Alex Trabas revised all geographical positions. Now I had to correct all my pictures as well.I hope everything is correct now.

Hi Pete! I did some research on this topic. There are number of "dunce cap" lighthouses in Japan (i.e. Hiroshima, Fujisawa, Hakata Kō - most of them were build after 1950s) I would say likely this picture is Yokohama South Outer Breakwater (built 1939). Here are some other pictures of it: LH Japan yamatae.sakura.ne.jp
It has slightly different configuration of windows (but this could be due to tower reconstruction) but general shape of the tower, breakwater and square building nearby - everything is very similar. As far as I've found in internet - American troops were landed in Yokohama after surrender of Japan so this fits to story as well.

Lighthouse Directory from Russ Rowlett is very useful for all of us lighthouse lovers. But often I see great differences for height of the tower and focal plane elevation from Open Sea Map. For instance: Roscoff ! A1812.1 Russ: 24 and 24, Open Sea : 15 and 24 (seems realistic ) Or the beacons in sea: A1818, Russ :20 and 14, Open Sea : 8 and 14 (seems realistic ) and so on...
