Kanmon Kaikyo, Kitakyushu

4.0
#1 of 29 in Outdoors in Fukuoka Prefecture
Scenic Drive Bridge
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.

  • Found and when I went to the port of MOJI, Moji port and karato port back and forth 5-minute ferry and ship immediately, Kyushu and crossed over to the Mainland. I was very lucky in the Shimonoseki side karato market to explore in the heart, and it wasn't planned originally, exploring the Shimonoseki-side is within 5 minutes. Available in a short period of time, a lot of fun. Please try to stay during the Moji tourist or Shimonoseki tourism.

  • Entering in Kyushu from the Mainland on the ground is very likely to take the air, often through deep emotion. Kanmon tunnel as an inexpensive route, but both years Mainland and feel the greatness as a bridge connecting Kyushu. Large scale summer Fireworks Festival is famous.

  • This is a picture from the mojiko retro area. I had watched from afar. I feel the history. In far too many ships. On the other side I feel close to. If you have time to slowly walk, I wanted to.

Where to stay in Kitakyushu

Kitakyushu boasts a good number of accommodations to host its relatively modest amount of visitors. Primarily located across the canal from the city hall, the choice includes a number of high-rise hotels and simple "ryokan" (guesthouses). Take a look to the north of the main train station for the most luxurious options in town, with extensive views of the sea and the old buildings of the dock. Holiday rentals provide a particularly budget-friendly option further inland in the main residential districts.
