Water Body · Nature / Park
Watch huge tankers slide below a suspension bridge with a central span of 712 m (2,336 ft) at Kanmon Kaikyo, straits that link Honshu and Kyushu islands. Go 56 m (183 ft) below the sea level on foot or by bike through one of the four undersea tunnels to get a feeling of its immensity. Along the pedestrian path next to the coast, large sculptures of epic samurai duels and replicas of cannons used in a failed attempt to fend off menacing westerners add history to this strategic area. Make Kanmon Kaikyo part of your personalized Kitakyushu itinerary using our Kitakyushu route planner.
