Kanmon Tunnel for Humans, Shimonoseki

(190 reviews on the web)
Landmark
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.

  • Stop cars in the gateway Plaza (free) platform, you can visit the Pudong battlefield ruins this tunnel. In an elevator underground 11 is the real entrance and go down to the 階位. Who was comes pretty natural scenery on the outside does not seem so unusual facility. Are people free bicycles, ¥ 20 is an unattended box into fee form. Gltsu and around and through the ground is just around the corner from Moji on the other side, so it is convenient.

  • Kanmon Strait between Fukuoka Prefecture and Yamaguchi Prefecture. Humanity through the sea bed. Road is fairly normal. You could feel the greatness of who made the walk while thinking about just now walking my way is in the sea, such as. Also people have been running quite a lot and I felt somewhat strange. It is some good memories.
