Kanmon Tunnel for Humans, Shimonoseki
(3.5/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
Dare to take a walk through Kanmon Tunnel for Humans, located under the Kanmon Straits. Constructed in 1958, the pedestrian tunnel connects the two islands of Kyushu and Honshu. Because it connects two prefectures, a white line divides the walking path in two--each reserved for a specific direction. While you don't have much in the way of sightseeing in this tunnel, the interior still bears its original 1950s design. Use the tunnel as a way of making your trip between the islands shorter, or as a jogging and cycling path. Add Kanmon Tunnel for Humans and other attractions to your Shimonoseki trip itinerary using our Shimonoseki trip builder.

  • 一步之隔便能跨越本州和九州的行人隧道。隧道的總長度不是很長,很多本地人來這裡跑步。要留意隧道是有人值守的,不是廿四小時開放,每晚十一時便會關閉。
