Planted in 1940, the camphor trees lining Provincial Highway 16 between Mingjian and Jiji have grown over the past decades into a shading canopy of green that admits the sun in splashes of light. The "Green Tunnel," as it is known, extends for 4.5 kilometers approximately parallel to the Jiji Branch rail line, creating a perfect spot for a scenic bicycle tour through a rustic landscape.
