Kanmon Tunnel for Humans, Shimonoseki

3.6
#4 of 34 in Sightseeing in Shimonoseki
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

All it is is good I think, but in only 1 place see underwater with tempered glass-. I could not see anything dark?? But I walked a distance of Kyushu from Honshu, Japan pretty much was a sense of accomplishment.
