100 thoughts on “Is It Possible to Build a Tunnel from Japan to Korea?

  1. *[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.

  2. A tunnel from Korea to Japan? Are you kidding me? How that's possible?

    I was thinking that we are going to build one from earth to moon first. ๐Ÿ˜‚

  3. Watching this as a Brit with Brexit hanging over my head, I miss the spirit we had to build the Chunnel. Isolation gets us nowhere but stuck inside our own heads. I hope this tunnel happens one day, and the connectedness is something treasured.

  4. Great idea! This will resolve lots of misunderstanding and close the gap between 2 countries socially and culturally.

  5. China vs Korea vs Japan! Their hates for each other are deep in the DNA ๐Ÿงฌ ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ I believe no one there like the idea ๐Ÿ’ก

  10. No wonder my friend keep saying he uses car from France to England and I keep saying his is lying. I prove myself wrong.

  11. Its not a bad idea but, i think ALOT more time is gonna have to pass before it actually happens, Korea has taken alot of hits from its eastern neighbor there and its even built into the language this visceral animosity towards them. Japan is gonna have alot to prove before there is enough trust for this to work…..

  12. I think the original idea was for the bridge to connect Japan to all of the other mainland Asian countries but now it would only connect Japan to one country due to North Korea being closed off

  13. At last, something the Japanese and the Koreans can agree on; the tunnel project is utterly unnecessary and absurd.

  14. The British and French are still rivals (a bit) but mainly in making fun of each others langauge. (Or is that just the brits?)

  15. Yeah similar but no it's not comparable.
    French and British fought about a millennia ago, also the last major conflict had them be allies against the axis.
    Japan on the other hand was the enemy, they never fully admitted their crime and have been sort of excused because daddy US needed an ally in Asia to fight Russia.

    Their tension is pretty recent (not even a century), it's unfair to compare them as if they were in the same scenario and thus insinuate these countries are just being bitches…

  16. China had proposed an underwater tunnel to South Korea. S. Korea's benefit would be being able to travel and also ship cargo, without cooperation by or deals with North Korea.

    Same principle reason why Finland wants to build an underwater tunnel to Estonia. In that case, the benefit is avoiding Russia. By the way, Russia still claims land from northern Finland going back to World War 2.

    Also, same principle reason why Egypt wants to build not an underwater tunnel, but an oversea bridge, to Saudi Arabia. To avoid Israel.

  17. This reminds me of that one time that the Romans wanted to connect rome a a small island but the Bridge fell

  18. Of course its possible to build a tunnel from Japan to Korea. I've built much larger tunnels in Minecraft before.

  19. Why canโ€™t you just connect Hokkaido to Sakhalin then connect Sakhalin to Russian mainland

  20. Japan do NOT want this stupid tunnel for sure !!

    Plase do not come to Japan forever !!
    We can not trust Korea anymore.

    Please keep promises between countries and obey the international rules.

  21. don't worry guys, this tunnel will never happen and it should stay so. All japanese people i talked to had no idea this project existed. It's a dead project that a military general came up with, but since japan doesn't have a military anymore, the project shouldn't exist either.

  22. Hola, llego un poco tarde desde Argentina, creo ando perdido entre coreanos y japoneses peleando, alguien me explica la peleita?

  23. Who will develop a sea polluted with cesium in Japan? And why do you always make those vedioes that Japanese don't care about and never work?

  24. Nobody on the planet of Earth wants to get connected with Koreans. All Koreans are liars and thieves. In most of Asian countries, South Korean men are banned to marry human females by law. You have to know what kind of people all Koreans are. Most of Asian country don't give human rights to South Korean because Koreans are far different from humans. It's time to know the difference.

  26. Did you say both side need to go over this hurdle? It's the Japanese thay need to admit their fault and bow down and apologize, what do u want Korea do? Go tell Japan, ah all the things u do to us we forgive u? And japan be like : wut i didn't do anything

  27. I love the idea. I love this video.

    That being said I have a feeling that this may turn bad particularly in the case of terrorism. It may be a dumb thought but given the area that this is being proposed in, despite its flourishing economies and communities, I see this as very susceptible to attack. Then again a trans worldwide railroad sounds like a dream to me as a person who loves engineering.

  28. Well they drive in different sides of the road. So why not just construct an underground high speed rail tunnel. If China builds it for them, three nations would be connected.

  29. It is not a connection to Asian mainland till North Korea participates. Also, the connection via Russian Sakhalin is much simpler. There is already a EAC, made up of a few Soviet splinter countries

  30. It's not really the engineering that's holding them back other than the tectonic plates, but it's more of the difference in culture and rejection of society.
    Some people are just stupidly patriotic and can't let go of the past. I bet once all the old people die, we will see change.

  31. Japanese and Korean government: Let's build a chune-

    Angry koreans: BITCH YOU RAPED US LIKE A 100 YEARS AGO

    Angry Japanese: BITCH WE DIED TO STOP YOU

  32. it is possible. Even china already on its way for underground tunnel from liaoning to shandong, same distance as you mention in japan korea. But it will never happen. lets leave it like that

  34. Most of the Koreans highly deny the undersea tunnel between two nations. It won't be beneficial for both Korea and Japan because of complicated reasons lol

  35. This korean comments so fucking annoying. They are so closed minded about everything. As a korean, I really don't see the problem with this plan.
