    HOW TO BUILD A MEGA TUNNEL FROM KOREA TO JAPAN
    In 1917, a Japanese Army general by the name of Kuniaki Koiso, wanted to connect Japan to the rest of Asia. He suggested the idea of building a grand tunnel from Japan all the way to Korea. Certainly a tremendous feat of engineering; and not just for that point in time. Over the next hundred years, through the various incarnations, and despite the numerous proposals, the project never moved beyond conception; today, as we know, there’s still yet to be a tunnel or bridge connecting the two countries.
    But the question is, for how long?
    Compared to air travel, having an accessible route by land is going to save people a lot of money, especially when sending goods; which is why most companies tend to use sea routes (though that’s still significantly more expensive than sending by land). The proposed tunnel would also serve a portion of the 20,000 people who travel daily between Korea and Japan. Ultimately, there would be an increase in economic activity for both countries, contributing to the economic development of the whole of East Asia
    Also:
    - Korea Strait
    - Channel Tunnel or Chunnel (longest undersea portion of any tunnel)
    - Seikan Tunnel (longest undersea tunnel overall)
    - 3 proposed routes for the Japan-Korea tunnel - Karatsu to Iki Island to Tsushima Island, then terminating at either Geoje Island or Yeongdu, Busan.
    - Port of Busan
    - Traveling from Tokyo to Seoul by land
    - Immense cost of JKUT
    - Viability of project
    - Historic psychological barrier
    - Japan & Korea war
    - Japanese invasion of Korea
    - Korean mistrust
    - Political & economic influence
    - UK & France history & similarities
    - European Union & East Asian Community
    - Island mentality
    - China's increasing influence
    - Tokyo, Seoul & Beijing route
    - North Korea's relevance
    - Trans-global highway
    - Human transportation, engineering & architecture

    *[Edit: It's a bit disappointing the number of people leaving premature comments who have clearly reacted only to the title or having only watched part way through the video. Many of the points people are mentioning from the Korean side are already brought up in the video. At least watch it through before dropping viscerally-charged comments.]
    Parts of this video may be sensitive to some people, but I tried to keep this as balanced and fair as possible. If you feel I have said something inaccurate in the video, CONSTRUCTIVE feedback is always welcome. And if you disagree with someone in the comments section, there's no need to be aggressive or belittling. Let's keep it civilized! (I know... i tried).
    For those who feel the need to comment on the 'Sea of Japan' labeling of the map in the video, understand the map is obtained off Google Maps (not labelled by us). Additionally, note that the 'Sea of Japan' is the dominant term used in English-speaking countries (as well as in Europe, China & Russia); while 'East Sea' is used primarily in South Korea ('Korean East Sea' in North Korea). With that said, the video makes no claims on what the 'correct' term is.
    Anyway, I was meant to publish this video last weekend but I got pretty sick, so I'm hoping to get the next video out sooner (to make up for it!).

      +Grenth Blue Japan has not even one single reason to apologize to Korea. But Korea has every single reason to apologize to Japan since Koreans have been ofernders and criminals and Japanese have been victimized by Koreans. So you Koreans have to apologize for making so much lies to cheat on all Humans on Earth.

    s.korea is also an island.
    except for north, s.korea is surrounded by sea. and there is an illegal government in the north.
    even though korea is reunited,
    the rail road in north korea remained the same. after occupation of japan, n.korea didn't repair their rail road. so the train only can run 60km/h at the fastest.

    It's funny thing : Japaneses tend to insist that they hate idea about making tunnel between k & J. Korean Ministry of Land and etc organization do not have any other concern of this. Even though japan politicians have been coming up with this things, It just doesn't fit up to two country's benefits. they said that, and they have been complaining it. It is absurd

    The difference between UK-France and Japan-Korea is that Japan fucking colonized Korea and committed numerous atrocities which it has still yet to apologize for, they aren't fucking comparable because Britain never went over to France and forced French women into sex slavery, seriously what the fuck how can you just gloss over that?

    I'm afraid no Japanese are interested in building a tunnel any longer.
    Many Japanese don't want Koreans to come to stay in Japan.
    Japan sea is a natural wall against invasion from the Chinese continent as well as Korean peninsula.
    But it is not the Japan sea, Japanese hatred against Koreans who have been betrayed Japan.
    Japanese don't trust Koreans. That’s why the tunnel idea looks silly.

    its funny when you speak of a trans continential rail way you don't place a rail network between Sakhalin and Far East Asia (Russia) that would be far cheaper and should have been built along time ago. But I guess that you would have to have a conversation about why japan didn't secure Sakhalin island in WW2 and that's a different story. Still that would be far cheaper.

    • cliff woodbury

      japan imports all of its oil witch is very very expensive. If a bridge with rail road and gas and oil lines was built over the straight between Sakhalin island and Far East Russia this would no longer be a problem and the Japanese economy would instantly become many times more efficient (save a dollar make a dollar)

    It is true that Japan would like to connect the tunnel to Korea. So Japan has already built a 500m tunnel without negotiations with Korea. Why? Japan is preparing for the unification of South Korea and North Korea. At that time, Japan can move to Europe through the Korea-Japan tunnel. As a result, this tunnel is more advantageous for Japan.

    This ridiculous video underestimated the most serious issue for such a tunnel. There has just been no point for such a tunnel unless North Korea opens itself up and has a adequate economy, while the former takes no less than 3 years and the latter takes no less than 5 years. So I can't see such a tunnel in any near future.

    3. British kill more than 1 million French over 30 years in genocide
    4. British use French for human medical experiment
    5. British drag 200,000 French males into battle field, made them charge into Americans without weapons to die for British
    6. British drag 250,000 French females and used them as sex slaves, many being killed.
    And...
    7. People who are responsible for 1~6 are enshrined in Arlington cemetary and still revered as national heroes today?
    8. British revise their school textbooks and teach 1~6 never actually happened?
    Do you believe British French relation today can possibly be normal?

After watching this video however I am concerned about your bias primarily by the inclusion of the 150% economic growth stat which seems utterly ridiculous. I can see no reason this would be included unless you are an idiot or heavily biased, I would like to be proved wrong by having a link to the source for this statistic.

    I doubt that cars would be allowed to freely drive through the tunnel, as any kind of stalled vehicle or accident would be a major safety and traffic hazard. My guess is that this would use a system similar to the Chunnel, where cars, trucks, and buses first drive onto high speed trains that carry them through the tunnel.

    Many people claim its weak points and deny its possibility. I'm not a Korean. I'm a Japaneses. So I never know how Koreans see Japan. However, we can't judge any book by its cover. Everyone used to say no for carrying a computer in a pocket. Everyone used to say no for being connected by all world citizens. But, see we made all those "impossible" realize so far. I personally like dreaming, rather than find its faults. Why don't you dream and find ways to make it come true rather than just keep pointing out Its flaws? I liked it in Korea when I went there for my school trip and I have been hoping to go there again! A little bit cheaper, I hope.
    You are very welcome to discuss with me. However, in English or Japanese, I can't speak Korean, I'm sorry.

    There are some fundamental differences between this tunnel and Chunnel:
    - Chunnel connects the UK to all of Europe. For all intents and purposes, land travel from South Korea to Russia or China is impossible, so this bridge would not connect Japan to Asia.
    - Even if you overcome that problem, countries in the region are divided by mountain ranges and politics, with little inter-country train traffic or economic union.
    - Although the UK and France had a historical divide, they were also both engaged in the European Union at the time of tunnel construction. Japan and South Korea do engage with each other in a friendly manner, but not to the degree of cooperation seen within the European Union.

    Your argument equating England/France and South Korea/Japan is very weak. There is a difference comparing wars from hundreds of years ago to one that still have living survivors. The children and grand children still carry the pain of that was done to Koreans by the hands of the Japanese. You should research Korean comfort women and the hell that they lived before posting videos that people should just get over it for the economy. AND I WATCHED THE ENTIRE VIDEO!

    Korea loses its geographical advantage when it builds the tunnel. The geographical advantage of which is greatly increased after Korea reunified is much more economic value than that of Japan, so we should not build tunnels. Those who want to build the tunnel are the ones who want Korea to be weak. Don't let the past of Britain and France get by. They are also only acting in the interests of each other. It is rude to discuss emotions in international politics.

    a little shake(earthquake)in the middle , a merry pop and bang(volcano eruptions) on top and some splash(tsunami) on the side might finish it sooner..sadly we might have to wave them sayonara...

    I do respect your opinion, but I will disagree on that it will be more beneficial to South Korea than Japan economically. In any economic agreement, the country with the bigger economy will always win. While not directly related with this topic, think about why all the big economic powers are eager to do economic agreements with financially weaker nations that exploit their own people, but hesitant to with countries that have comparable or better economic capacity with a lot of worker rights (even South Korea is guilty of this).
    Let's revisit this when South Korea's and Japan's GDPs are within 10% or less with each other. Currently, Japan's economy is more than 3 times bigger than Korea (maybe 4 times). If the current conditions holds while the tunnel is built, Pusan will only serve as a transition hub with negligibly little or no economic benefits while majority of Korea will just simply be skipped or ignored. If there's any solace for Korea, is that even though the economy is smaller than Japan it is big enough that it cannot be bullied into entering disadvantageous agreeements like the building of a tunnel.
    Let's be clear on the intent of the tunnel. It will provide easier trade access for Japan to do business with China, Southeast Asia, Middle East, and Europe. The only market that it will open up more for Korea, will be Japan. These are not equal parameters by any measure. If I was in the Korean government, I will try complete a railroad through North Korea and Russia completely circumventing China first before any tunnel talks. That would really change the economic world order. It will completely undermine One Belt, One Road. (That would probably make Russia the new hegemony though)
    Another way of Japan getting help for the tunnel from Korea, perhaps, is helping their reunification efforts (I know kidnapped Japanese citizens are still a issue, but can Japan set an example for South Korea to follow despite political issues?). Also, most people from Korean side that may agree with the tunnel are businessmen, economists, professors, and politicians that were bought from lobbying from Japan (google search or naver search thei background of Koreans who agree with the tunnel). In addition, people who want political alliance with Japan are the descendants of the same people who sold out their own nation for their financial/legal protection from the Japanese government during the Korean occupation. A significant majority of them reside with Korea's right wing parties such as Korea Liberation Party. In order to whitewash their wrongdoings they have agree with Japan's LDP's right wing narrrative. They could be good friends, probably.
    The blowback, while very unfortunate, it was inevitable because it triggered years of unresolved resentment. I wish you knew before posting. Anyways, Thank you for the conversation starter. It gives something for people to talk about near the watercooler.

    Why Korean always bring about history? It's just showing how it affects on economic of 2 countries.
    We are gonna just help each other, OK? When South Korea was facing at crisis, we Japan have been helping you. When Japan is in trouble, Korea should help Japan as well.
    Most of comments on this video are just disgusting. We Japan have been helping Korea all the time, sometime for shitty Korean government too. However, Korea will just get help and keep complaining about history all the time? How long will you need to be satisfied with something cannot be changed? It's over and face it! We Japan had overcome the tragedy of atomic bomb and 311. Korean cannot do that? Yes, Korean can! Don't you even try to help Japan next time? Let's grow up and get over the past now.

      +Korean Mochi Sorry, dude. No matter Korean say "I want sincere apology from JP government" like a baby all the time, we will not change our attitude because there are some possibility that Korean lies just to get compensation like Korean old whores. Once we knew it, we don't care what Korean say anymore as for history education. History is not for Korean, OK?, which is elemental school kids can understand. So pls don't try to change history of other countries anymore. Visting Yasukuni is our culture to hope peace and to promise that we never cause the tragedy again as a leader of Japan. You were talking about Criminal A of war, but there are other soldiers who are non-Japanese and fought against white imperialism. You don't know that, do you? So we don't stop going to Yasukuni no matter Korean and Chinese complain about it.
      What we do have to do is just accept and overcome the past, and help each other. Why can't you guys understand this simple thing? Korea-Japan tunnel is not for fight, but to help each other OK? Don't even think to fight or try to destroy country like fucking parasites of Korean. Korean should change the way of thinking like seriously.

      Hey, a Korean here. I am all in for a deep Korean-Japanese relationship. The thing is, to my current understanding, many Koreans feels some or many Japanese politician aren't very sincere with their apology to Korea. Many Koreans feel offended by how Japanese politicians visits the Yasukuni Shrine ("commemorates those who died in service of Japan from the Boshin War of 1868-1869 to World War II" Wikipedia Article). The shrine lists the names of many convicted war criminals of which 14 are considered "Class A". Another controversy is the Textbook Controversy where "the Japanese nationalist efforts to whitewash the actions of the Empire of Japan during World War II" Wikipedia Article on 'Japanese history textbook controversies'. This has brought criticism from both the Peoples Republic of China and the Republic of Korea and even from Japanese too. Many Japanese citizens acknowledge the war crimes took place and genuinely feel remorse.

    I like that the seismic activity was included as a factor that influences where the tunnel should go. Yet I fear in a thousand years or more, seismic activity can change how the world would look like impacting the stability of tunnel or other related infrastructure.

    Korean side begged the annexation from Japan in 1910 but now "victims wannabe".
    Japan abolished slave system of Joseon Empire/Kingdom and set up more than 4,000 schools and taught Hangul (korean alphabet).
    Seoul University was built in 1924 by Japan. Many hospitals were built by Japan.
    The average life expectancy of Joseon (before the annexation) was only 25 years old!!! Only 25 years old!!!
    But it was improved from 25 to 45 years in 1940s old because Japan had modernized Korea.
    In addition, the population of Korea had doubled only in 36 years!!!! It was no doubt a miracle.
    But Koreans are 사대주의 자, shameless and ungrateful 사대주의 자.

    Hummm.............Koreans seem to have double-personality. Is this why many Koreans use fake nationalities or disguise as Japanese on TVclip?
    It was Korean side who has made tunnel without any permission from Japan.
    20% of illegal immigrants in Japan are from South Korea.
    S.Korea is exporting 10,000 modern comfort women (prostitutes) to Japan every year.

      You are mistaken for an argument.
      Indeed the Korean government denied the necessity of the Japan - Korea tunnel in 2011. So what?
      What I am telling is that this kind of shit plan was proposed by Koreans.
      In 1980, a group of Koreans proposed to open the Japan - Korea tunnel.
      And in November of 1981, in Seoul, Korea, the guru of the Unification Church held the "10th International Conference on Chemistry Unification" and proposed the "International Highway Project".
      And as a starting point of the "International Highway Project", opening of the Japan-Korea tunnel was proposed.

      please tell me where you got this info... because I know for a fact that korean goverment did a feasibility research(2011. ministry of land sea and transport) on this agenda and decided that there was no economic benefit... plus you said that koreans want this tunnel and that it is they who proposed this idea, but like i said above 'korean government' decided it was no good and it was japan who suggested doing it which was during the bubble economy of japan. I dont know how old you are but during those time japanese government and their enterprises were really in to spending big chunks of money back then, so they proposed it without cosidering the huge amount of cost it would take.
      so yeah in coclusion you are basically wrong in every aspect...

    Japan : "Hi we raped your country some years ago and never made up for it! Can you build us a tunnel so we can get more rich? Thanks! Oh, you want an apology? Fuck you and let me take your islands (Dokdo) as well!"
    If Japan wants to build a tunnel they should build it with their own money and South Korea should tax every single Japanese traffic. Outright disgusting that this guy thinks a simple "apology" will make up the mindset lol
