    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
    - 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

    *[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!).

      What kind of Korean are you Kento? All Japanese people hate Koreans. There was recent survey "Which nationality you NEVER want to marry?" in Japan and Korean and Chinese were the above all ranked number one! That much all Japanese people hate Koreans.
      Also, many Asian countries ban marriage between Koreans and humans by law. Even China hate Koreans. The tunnel never comes true.

      Thanks to Kento Bento, I really enjoyed the video. I was very interested in the content and gained so much from it.
      One suggestion or, revision to the video is needed. The sea between the Japan and South Korea is marked as "Sea of Japan". It was originally and still now officially "East Sea" or "동해" in Korean peninsula state of view. How that got its name of "Sea of Japan" is during the illegal colonization of Korea.
      I do realize it is very had to change a video that has already been uploaded but next time, when you use a map of Korea and Japan, it wiuld be so kind of you to state it as "East Sea" or use the photo stated "East Sea"

    We never connect korea with japan undersea tunnel. If we built tunnel in busan city of korea with japan then they steal our money. And many korean never accept to built undersea tunnel with japan. When japan attack china they thought we need to go through korea(jo-sun) to attack to china. So we never built undersea tunnel with japan

    Other hostile nations author said ... meaning China and Russia right?
    Yes construction of the tunnel boost ties between Japan and South Korea. However, Japan really want is to connect to further world, meaning China and Russia. Unless connecting these two large countries tunnel is almost worthless for Japan, because South Korean market is not so large, and we already have ships.
    For Japanese, we need to access to North via South Korea, but South Korea probably think if they can access to China and Russia via North they lose interest for the tunnel, because the tunnel is most valuable in era when North Korea is true hostile.

    It's sad that most people still live in the 1940s, even though nearly none of them was actually born back then. Building the tunnel would easily benefit both countries, even if initial building costs are very high. It would ease trade routes, improving the economies of both countries and improve social and political relationships between them. Why do people care what Japan did 400 years ago and again 70 years ago? Back then, Japan was ruled by cruel emperors and dictators. Not sure whether you realised, but Japan is a completely different country today.
    Both Japan and Sout Korea are now 2 highly developed economically stable countries with high levels of technological innovation, and some of the best education systems in the world.
    They, and people who oppose the tunnel for historical reasons should know better. It's ridiculous and petty.

    This plan is absurd and past.
    Maintenance costs are far greater than drilling costs.

    Ships are far more efficient.
    And, if Seoul is the last railroad, the airplane is faster and more efficient.

    Before Koreans complete the tunnel of depth and distance over the Seikan tunnel with Korean technology alone, insist on this humorous plan to Japan.

    In Japan, only a few Japanese who are taking bribes from Korean money cult group, Korean residents in Japan, and those who insist on that plan.
    About 10 years ago, the Japanese branch of the Korean cult organization held an event "Japan-Korea tunnel Tsushima exploratory tunnel" every year, inviting donations from foolish followers.
    However, its construction is not even 1 cm away from their land.
    And I have not applied for a construction permit to the governor of Nagasaki prefecture or the Japanese government.

    The relation between Japan and SE Asia has never been too friendly Post WWII, Japan committed some of the worst war crimes in human history during the 30-40s. It's hard to forget when generations of people still feel the aftereffects of the war.
    There's a lot of political and historical barriers for Japan to overcome in order to bring reconciliation with their neighbours.
    There have been some amendments made by them, but it was enough to heal the wound.
    My mother's grandfather was taken away by the Japanese military to serve as part of their puppet force in China.
    Needlessly to say, he was never seen again.
    Personally, it would be a grand project if everything come to fruition. But we are still a long way from getting therre.

    In fact, only thing which lays as bomb between us may be Kuril Islands.

    As it is now. Japan is not being connected to continent with the tunnel. It's only being connected to Korea. Which is not very lucrative. And Korea also have no reason to connect to japan. Why would they they are already located in the continent. Connecting these two countries is akin to connecting two island nation together. It's not britian-france. It's britian-ireland. And let us ask the question why isn't there a tunnel between britian and Ireland? It's not economically viable.

      Koreans still see Japanese people as the same people from 50 years ago. Most of our views in China about Japan have mostly changed since we now see Japan as a friendly nation however we do tend to have disputes with eachother. Korea on the other hand won't let go of their grudges, I don't blame them however I do think they go over the extreme sometimes. They push the agenda that the Japanese want this and that because they 'realise that Koreans are superior' due to the growing influence of Korea on the world stage from Kpop.
      Though let's be honest, most koreaboos who say they are fascinated in Korean culture have no idea what Korea is like other than kpop bands. Some koreaboos even say my Korean friends 'don't look Korean' because they don't look like kpop boys. Ah how I do love ignorant 12yros thinking they know all about the country thanks to some form of media they follow.

    2. Ban the use of imperial Japanese flag, punishable by fines or imprisonment.
    3. Complete destruction of shrines which worship war criminals from the pacific asian arc of ww 2.
    4. Immediate disengagement of all their recent buildup of military and naval strength.
    That's when I'll trust them.

    @Kento I think you should make a video of what's really going on between Japan and Korea, given the reactions here. Koreans are essentially mad for four major things: 1. Lack of apology from Japan for comfort women (No. the victims didn't want money. It was lead by the impeached president, Park. There's a movement to return the money for an official apology) 2. Japan's actions toward Dokdo (aka Takeshima). 3. Labeling of East Sea. 4. Quit using the Japanese imperial flag (same as swastika of Nazi) and their rituals toward the soldiers of the previous war. If these four major issues are solved, Korea and Japan's relationship will become much better.

    In the case of France, it's continental and roads go in all directions, but Japan is long, composed of many islands. For me, as a Japanese resident, I can't really see how such a tunnel would be useful for Japan as a whole. Certainly it would for Kyushu and Busan, but at a wider scale I don't think so.

    But there are many problems as much as the optimistic views which you've shown us. The tunnel passes through a fault line, which brings the tunnel into a safety problem. In this long tunnel, There would be no way to create a safe evacuation route for people in the middle of the sea in case of an emergency situation such as fire or traffic accident. So if there is an earthquake around the Tsushima island where the tunnel passes through, it's game over for all of them. Also, there is this suspicion between the two which causes a blockade to this project, but this isn't the biggest problem. The economies of the two nations are not doing very good nowadays. The Japanese bubble economy has collapsed and the lost decade has just passed through in Japan, and their economy is hanging on a string, which, the national debt situation is worsening day by day. In Korea as well, the economic growth is slowing down, and internal problems are blowing up, and is taking the path of Japan to the lost decade, from population decrease to incoming collapsing of housing market. None can manage such a project at this situation. That protest against the mayor of Busan after his sign of approval to this project was not really because of hatred towards the Japanese, but because the people want the government to just focus on the internal policies and the welfare of the people than such megaprojects. If you see, for the last few years, there has been numerous cases of regional bodies (city, province, etc) wasting the tax monies on those megaprojects and bringing no real profit for the people, such as the 4 river reorganisation project, gyeongin ara-canal, and regional airports. The economic profit which is mentioned, is quite over expected. The train cargo travel in Japan (don't get me wrong, I have the least intention to insult anyone) sucks. Because if the technical problems of Japanese railway network (uses 1067mm narrow gauge), there are many tracks which can't even transport international standard cargo containers, and since many of Japan's major cities are on the shoreside and have a good ports, railway cargo is often ignored. For passenger transport as well, using a plane(cheap airlines) is much more cheaper, and faster than using a train. Finally, this is more of a technical problem. Korea uses 1435mm standard gauge, and Japan uses 1067 narrow gauge. This means that a Japanese train can't simply run on a Korean railway track and a Korean train can't run on a Japanese railway. One side needs to change, or their trains should be modified for a gauge transfer, or the passengers need to transfer at the border to a different train, or Korean and Japan needs to install a double track across the country's railway network which will cost as much as installing a new railway.

    Its interesting topic but you have some missing points. First if north korea doesnt allows the path to continent, it is no use. Second is it possible and safe techincally?? You know japan locates in ring of fire and it includes island of sushima. If theres earthquake in tunnel it will be a catastrophe like fukushima. Third do you know northern port cities of France downsized because of chunnel?? Busan is second largest city in Korea and if Busan port gets bad effect because of chunnel it wont benefit Korea as much as Japan. So I dont think it will benifit both size as you think. And thats why japan is more eager to build that tunnel.

    I think comparing with uk and france is not so good.
    Has france ever been colonized by uk for 36 years?
