Lighthouse: I have not 100% visual confirmation because the image is not good enough.  But if you see a red tower under the Tokio Gate Bridge, the chances are very high that the tower be the Tokio Gate East Breakwater.  And when a better image appears it is posible that we can confirm a second lighthouse on the stamp.  White circle with the West Breakwater.


UPDATED  April 2017

Thanks to Vladimir that send this image that confirms the 2 Breakwaters of the Tokio Gate Bridge. East and West.
