A Recent Review of this tour

Fumiko being a local of Hakodate showed us the site of a major disaster that brought about the building of the undersea tunnel. I was very happy to learn about the the actual building of the tunnel and the geography of the land that the tunnel was built in. I was told about the three tunnels that were built to in order for the Bullet Train to pass through it. We were taken to two locations where the train entered and exited the undersea tunnel. Thank you Fumiko for showing us Hakodate and Fukushima.
