||Chofu Port Area is located in the Seto Inland Sea West Industrial
Area, close to the eastern mouth of the Kanmon Strait.
For the purpose of developing the oceanfront industrial
zone in the eastern part of Shimonoseki, a site of 4.3 hectares was
reclaimed in 1992 as the Stage 1 Project. In addition, as a part of
the second construction phase, the 11m deep berth construction has started
from 2003, expecting its operation in 2006. With Municipal Transit Shed
No. 1 completed in 1997, the processing capacity has improved significantly.
At this port, large-sized tires are exported and cargo consisting mainly
of lumber and nonferrous metals is imported. Furthermore, the Port of
Chofu was opened in 2001 along with the expansion of the Port of Kanmon.
