About this sight

Constructed in 1986, the Kashiwazaki Whale Underpass passes under Highway 8 in order to allow pedestrians to cross it. Possibly the coolest underpass we've ever seen, the whale even has a jet of water shoot from its blowhole at regular intervals. Even if only for the novelty and photo opportunity aspects alone, the Kashiwazaki Whale Underpass is definitely worth a visit1
