Daiichi-Tsuu-Dou

I’m going to tell you about “Daiichi-Tsuu-Dou.”

“Daiichi-Tsuu-Dou” is a 1000m tunnel in Old Besshi area.

It was built with conveyable materials so that the construction could become easier.

And, it could help Old Besshi modernized.

“Chiku-den-sha”,  which was powered by electricity, was runninig at that time.

The railway had connected Old Besshi to Niihama city until “Dai-San-Tsuu-Dou” was built.

Now, it is used as a warehouse.
