Kanmon Straits

The Kanmon Straits, separating Honshu and Kyushu, is a very 
busy waterway with as many as 700 small and large ships a day 
passing through it.
There are a total of seven ways to cross the straits such as the 
1,068-meter-lomg “Kanmonkyo Bridge”, which is for motor 
vehicles only, the “Shin-Kanmon Tunnel” for Shinkansen bullet 
trains, the “Kanmon Pedestrian Tunnel”, which enables people 
to cross on foot, the “ferries”, and the like.
