Kanmon Kaikyo, Kitakyushu

(4/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
Watch huge tankers slide below a suspension bridge with a central span of 712 m (2,336 ft) at Kanmon Kaikyo, straits that link Honshu and Kyushu islands. Go 56 m (183 ft) below the sea level on foot or by bike through one of the four undersea tunnels to get a feeling of its immensity. Along the pedestrian path next to the coast, large sculptures of epic samurai duels and replicas of cannons used in a failed attempt to fend off menacing westerners add history to this strategic area. See Kanmon Kaikyo and all Kitakyushu has to offer by arranging your trip with our Kitakyushu travel itinerary planner.

  • In Japan from the North Hokkaido, Honshu, Shikoku and Kyushu-Okinawa would increase from 5. And the Mainland is the kanmon Straits which separates Kyushu. Is now connected on the kanmon bridge and cross while watching the scenery in the car or the Shinkansen and Sanyo in the kanmon tunnel cross over from underground with easily accessible. We got the kanmon Kisen, shuttled between Moji and karato port kanmon Strait. The sea and the beautiful view of the sea for a long time is good to go.

  • Temple of Shimonoseki, is approximately 700 metres between Pudong and Moji mekari interest Seto. Tide is shifting even 4 times a day. Strong tidal currents, it reaches up to 8 knots. In front of Shimonoseki, Kyushu and Honshu is really close and I felt.

  • Across the highway in the past, walked to the bottom of the humanitarian. This time on a business trip to the Shimonoseki city, first using the Shinkansen to Kokura from Kokura Sanyo Shimonoseki went. I look over the motorway of the sea and, on everyday humanitarian's thought. But after leaving Kokura Moji area is the old town clean and felt good.
