In order to visualize the "International Highway Japan-Korea Tunnel," which proposes one concrete measure for world peace, Tokyo publishing company Kogonsha visited the tunnel slope sites in Karatsu, Iki, and Tsushima for about a week. I took a picture.Not only the progress of tunnel construction, but also historic sites, museums, and scenic spots will be recorded on video, and the "Iki Tsushima route" connecting Japan and South Korea will be visualized.


In addition, several videos will be completed around the summer, including interviews with the chairpersons and caretakers of the "Prefectural Council" nationwide, who are politically working to promote the construction of the "Japan-Korea Tunnel."The project will move forward at an accelerating pace if we can concretely imagine international highways and tunnels where people can freely come and go by connecting countries across national borders.


Kogonsha's three shooting team shot in the order of Karatsu, Iki, and Tsushima from May XNUMXth to XNUMXth.Karatsu was hit by heavy rain due to the approaching typhoon that was out of season.After interviewing Director Yoshitaka Okubo about the progress of tunnel construction at the site, he photographed the inside of the inclined shaft and the site.


A young cameraman who visited the site for the first time stood at the tip of the 540m tunnel at the Nagoya Castle Ruins in Karatsu and said, "There is something you can feel for the first time when you see it with your own eyes and walk with your own feet. I don't know just by looking at it, "he said with deep emotion, but calmly turned the camera.

The next morning, I visited the ruins of Nagoya Castle, which was the base for Hideyoshi's dispatch to Korea, and overlooked the Genkai Sea and the islands from the castle tower.Hideyoshi stayed here for a total of one year for this dispatch, which is said to be the "Seven Years' War," while showing the soul of the photographer to the shooting team who turned the camera to the islands even in the rain. I wish I had a peaceful heart.

On the afternoon of the second day, I went to Iki.We visited the planned site of Ashibe's inclined shaft and interviewed Director Shohachi Matsumura.After seeing the site site from the sea side of the nearby fishing port, I walked around the site where precision surveying was about to be done to set up a wellhead, squeezing through the grass.

The "God's skill + human skill" that the wisdom of mankind and the cutting-edge technology of the Japan-Korea tunnel is a casual piece of Iki Island, a sandy beach where waves rush against the background of the blue Genkai Nada where liners make white tracks. Appears here.


I also searched from Iki's highest peak "Taketsuji" observatory and "Saruiwa" on the west coast to feel the distance from Karatsu and Tsushima connected by a tunnel, but Tsushima is easy because of the clouds after the typhoon. Did not show up.In addition, we visited the historic site "Harunotsuji Ruins" and the Ikikoku Museum, and photographed the prosperity of the Wei Shi Yajinden era.


A veteran videoman of the shooting team also expressed interest in the fact that there is a life dedicated to the shadow of the big business, "Is the director of Iki working hard here for XNUMX years? It's just a professional." He said that it would be interesting to visualize the way humans live.

I went to Tsushima in the evening of the third day.Tsushima, a border town.It is the main place for shooting now, and the foundation is currently focusing on it.We interviewed Director Katsuyuki Uchiyama at the Aren Slope entrance completed in July last year.The director said, "Next, I want to extend the wellhead by XNUMXm and prepare for the installation of a winch. It is also necessary to secure electricity and water," he said with his dreams and hopes for the future.Also, on the Aren coast west of the wellhead, President Masuo Oe enthusiastically said, "This direction is Geojedo, South Korea, and the tunnel goes XNUMX km toward it."


The president of Kogonsha said, "I want to make videos from several different perspectives in order to let various people know about this project. Tsushima is an important place for Japan, but it is also interesting from South Korea. By the way, I hope Tsushima will become a pioneer of world peace. "


The shooting team visited the Banshoin Temple, the museum, the tomb of Yoshisu Amemori, the Watatsumi Shrine, Mt. Karasuhata, Manzeki Bridge, the Korean Observatory in Tsushima, and the Japan-Russia Friendship Hill to capture the beauty and history of Tsushima. It was.Tsushima will move to a new stage if it has a scenic coastline from the earth's orogenic activities and geographical environment, and if the history of interacting with the peninsula from the Jomon period can provide humankind with a "concrete image of world peace."


Mountains, rocks, sea, waves, coasts, beaches, birds, flowers.A video man who points the camera everywhere in the natural world and shoots like a lover.The staff who check and record the video as soon as they return to the inn.I look forward to the images produced from it.
