Kanmon Kaikyo, Kitakyushu

(4/5 based on 160+ 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.

  • Sun can be seen from the kanmon Strait of Shimonoseki side. Guests can enjoy fine everytime but it depends on the day, a nice sunrise. The long-awaited trip. You'd look up early if I was fine. Would be nice.

  • Kitakyushu and Shimonoseki-if you look at the big bridge to connect in the evening, you can see a beautiful sight. If you have a car, you can take advantage of, and of course the hiker to walk into the tunnel with their Grand Khan-driven bikes are also available. Watch the traffic between the island and the fact that the hub of the island.

  • If the kanmon Straits why don't you take a look at across the kanmon bridge? This is the superb view. Remember the scene of fights the kanmon Strait and Genpei War is just around the corner and saw many times, in the historical drama eddying flow speed, drank the breath. Beautiful views and a spare in a nutshell. In resolution disappeared in the waves deep emotion to feel.
