Kanmon Tunnel for Humans, Shimonoseki

(3.6/5 based on 180+ 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.

  • Shimonoseki-Moji tourist in. In 780 m long walk outside (bicycle or moped) takes 20 yen. After a lunch at karato also moves its river (Yamaguchi Prefecture) humanitarian tunnel to Fukuoka Prefecture. Just take a walk. Also, we often see people wearing jerseys, jogging etc. Are marking the border base tunnel so many highlights it is, but I will be happy. Also Yamaguchi and Fukuoka on both sides each stamp there (happy, may be one), so is also to win the Memorial in order to get good travel memories.

  • The Mainland and island boundary of Kyushu, Yamaguchi and Fukuoka prefectures are verified at their feet. It is a strange underneath your under the sea.
