Akashidou Historic Site
Explanation:
It's the site where Ryuuzouji Takanobu's statue is located.
Four hundred years ago, there was a 'hall' (堂: 'hall' may not be the most appropriate word choice here...) on this site that functioned as a lighthouse (hence the name) to guide fishing boats and others safely to shore.

Pictures and explanation here:
