The meaning of Homigot is tiger's tail which shows the southeast part of the Korean Peninsula shaped like a tiger. After 7 times of exploration, Kim Jeong-ho, who made Daedongyeo Jido (Map of Korea) confirmed that it was the easternmost point on mainland of Republic of Korea.

Nam Sa-go, a scholar of the theory of divination based on topography (Pungsujiri) in the era of King Myeongjong of Joseon Dynasty in the 16 century, said Homigot was the best place which fell on the tiger's tail, as Koreans believe that the Korean map resembles a tiger.

Choi Nam-seon illustrated Homigot as a tiger roaring toward the Manchurian field with its paw raising up in the air and counted the sunrise of Homigot as one of the ten magnificent sceneries in Joseon.

Zoologist explains that tiger runs with the power of tail and commands its group by using tail, representing bravery and courage. As tail of tiger has its special energy and represents the development and stability of Korea, Japan wanted to cut off the national energy by putting metal stake into the place. Also, they also argued that the Korean Peninsula resembled a weak rabbit, not a bravery tiger, so called Homigot as a tail of a rabbit.

According to the data of Korea Astronomy & Space Science Institute, the time of sunrise in Homigot is 7:32 AM in the morning based on January 1, 1999. You can see the first sunrise in the Korean Peninsula well-matching its other name, Yeongil Bay. Along with the sunrise coming from the deep East Sea, Homigot will stay forever as the land of light and hope.

If you drive along the Yeongil Bay, you can appreciate the 'tail of tiger' in the Korean map. As one of the tourist attractions of Yeongil Bay, Homigot is a place where two million people come to enjoy Homigot Sunrise Festival, Flower Festival, and Lighthouse Museum every year.
