A Bridge That Turns Into An Underwater Tunnel Connecting Denmark And Sweden

Mate, compared to Tokyo, the Boso area doesn’t have much in the way of trains. There’s maybe…3 lines? The Sotobo, the Uchibo and I believe there’s one cutting across the middle to join the two (not sure about that). To get around Chiba in general south of Narita you need a car because the train coverage isn’t that good. 
Also, the bus from Kimitsu to Tokyo station (using the tunnel) is only $15 so it’s really not that bad considering the time saved.

There really aren’t enough commuters from that area of Chiba that travel to Tokyo to make a train line viable. Then again, it might be a question of build and they will come (it probably would encourage a few to live in the Boso area).

I’m reading a bit more into why they decided to do what they did, but I suspect it had little to do with transporting people more than goods. Maybe there were constraints at the time when planning started in 70s that stopped a development like a railway.
