【This is Seikan Tunnel !】

"Seikan Tunnel"(connecting Aomori and Hokkaido) is 53.85 km in length and is the longest tunnel for transportation in the world.

I went to a museum that was built to commemorate the construction of the Seikan tunnel. In there, You can actually go in the tunnel which dug first when making Seikan tunnel.(Top photo)

I have learned how hard this construction was there. In order to construct this, we needed struggling unthinkable, advanced technology, and indomitable spirit.

As Japanese, I was proud of those great achievement. And , we will never forget the person who died in this construction.

"海峡(Strait)" (starred by Ken Takakura & Sayuri Yoshinaga) is a movie about the construction of the Seikan tunnel.This is a very very good movie to see!
