Kanmon Tunnel for Humans, Shimonoseki
Categories: Landmarks, Tourist Spots
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.

テレビでよくみていたので、まさかここに来れるとは思っても見なかった。山口と福岡の境界線をまたぐのはやはり感動する。でも海のそこだと思うと少し怖い。この時は湿気もすごく感じた。 自転車バイクは50円支払います。それ以外は無料です22時までですよI often watched on TV, so I come here also did not see. Straddling the line between Yamaguchi and Fukuoka is still impressed. And think of the sea there is a little bit scary. At this time I felt moisture. Bike pays 50 yen. Otherwise it is free of charge until 10 pm.show original
