Kanmon Tunnel for Humans (Shimonoseki Side), Shimonoseki

3.7
Dare to take a walk through Kanmon Tunnel for Humans (Shimonoseki Side), 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. Start your trip to Shimonoseki by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.
