Nejiri-Manpo, a Queer Brick Tunnel
Around the Keage (蹴上) station of subway line, there are many historic spots related to the Biwako-sosui (琵琶湖疎水, Lake Biwa canal), such as the Keage Incline (蹴上インクライン), a tunnel called Nejiri-Manpo (ねじりまんぽ) and other brick-made Western style buildings.
Nejiri-Manpo is a tunnel under the Keage Incline, whose bricks are lined in a spiral for the purpose of fortification. The tunnel greets its visitors with cold fresh air, inviting us to the cluster of mysterious historic heritage.
