Travel Guide - Minuma Tsusenbori (Minuma Canal)

InformationInformation

Minuma Tsusenbori, or Minuma Canal, is one of the oldest canals in Japan. It was built in the same way as the lock gate of the Panama Canal. It was opened in 1731, even 180 years earlier than the Panama Canal, to facilitate the transportation of goods between Urawa and Edo. It provides a connection between the Minuma Irrigation Canal and the Shiba-gawa River and has a rise and fall of 3 meters. It shows the strength of the technology at that time, and has been designated a national historic landmark. The residence of the canal caretaker (Suzuki Residence) remains as it stood at that time. Currently, the whole area around the canal has become the Minuma Tsusenbori Park and the 1km-long road along the canal is a good place for a stroll.
