Travel Guide - Old Amagi Tunnel


The old Amagi Tunnel was built in 1904. It was part of the Shimoda Route that extends north-south across Izu Peninsula and has been Important Cultural Property. It is also widely known as the setting for “Izu-no-Odoriko (The Dancer of Izu)”, a book by Nobel Laureate Yasunari Kawabata. The road that the dancer traveled in the book has been renovated as a pedestrian walkway, the Odoriko Trail. Many people, including fans of the book, are able to enjoy the setting of the book while walking the trail. Another famous author, Yasushi Inoue, spent his childhood in Yugashima Hot Spring and wrote “Shirobamba” with the hot spring town as the setting. In the town, the small paths that local residents used in the past to visit public bathhouses were restored as Yu-Michi (hot spring paths).

Anyone who has read the Japanese novel, Izu no Odoriko, knows about the old Amagi tunnel. It’s one of my favorite books. #NHK紅白 #kohaku
