#1 of 34 in Outdoors in Fukuoka Prefecture
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.

  • We looked at the Kanmon Strait from the Kanmon Bridge connecting Honshu and Kyushu. It was very nice, but the weather was good, so it was good to see the Kanmon Strait beautifully.

  • I crossed the strait by car. From Moji to Shimonoseki, we traveled by tunnel, and from Shimonoseki to Moji, across the bridge. The traffic fee is about 200 yen, but the view was good. However, it is necessary to be careful not to run into it because it runs slowly on everyone's bridge. The view from under the bridge was also impressive.
