From the entrance you'll take an elevator underground where you can then cross the under the Kanmon Strait on foot. Midway you'll pass an underwater sign marking the prefectural boundaries, an uncommon sight in Japan.

Review of Kanmon Tunnel for Humans (Shimonoseki Side)

It is pretty cool to be able to walk from from island to the next so easily and these humans enjoyed the walk.

I just heard about this Tunnel a few days ago. I had an extra day to kill, so I decided to see it.
From Kokura Station, I took the JR Kagoshima Line to the Mojiko Station Terminal. From there it...

This is a tunnel for pedestrians. Under Kanmon Strait we can walk from Shimonoseki to Moji and vice versa. There is a boundary line of two prefectures in tunnel, and it is a good photo spot.

          Heading west along Japan's largest island, Honshu, the very last prefecture you'll reach is Yamaguchi, separated from Kyushu by a small strip of water known as the Kanmon Straits, which the far-reaching harbor city Shimonoseki looks over. With water at every turn, the seafood of Yamaguchi is an indisputable highlight, and we're not talking just the usual fish dishes - the notorious fugu, or puffer fish, is a Japanese delicacy that was discovered in Yamaguchi prefecture, making it the best place to try it out.
