Old Amagi Tunnel旧天城トンネル

Other Sightseeing Spot

Located in the Yugashima district of Shizuoka Prefecture’s Izu City, this is Japan’s first and still existing stone roadway tunnel that is also the longest with a length of 445.5 meters. As a famous tunnel that appeared in the Yasunari Kawabata novel Izu-no-Odoriko (The Dancing Girl of Izu) and the Seicho Matsumoto novel Amagi Goe (Amagi-Pass), it supported the lives of the locals from 1905 until 1970 when the New Amagi Tunnel was completed. The surrounding area is enveloped in virgin forest, and the interior of the tunnel is cool even during summer. Many tourists visit the tunnel during the day.

          With the giant Pacific Ocean to the south and the great Mount Fuji to the north, Shizuoka prefecture is blessed with some of the best views the country has to offer. The white sand beaches of the Izu Peninsula are a rare find on mainland Japan, neighbored by beautiful cliffs, tumbling hills, and natural hot springs. As Japan's largest producer of green tea, the age-old tradition of tea drinking is ubiquitous in Shizuoka, from the miles of tea fields to the old tea houses hosting traditional tea ceremonies.
