Kitakyushu

An important gateway for trade and travel between Honshu and Kyushu, the city of Kitakyushu has an old industrial waterfront and provides access to a number of natural sites across the wider region. The Meiji-era buildings around the docks have been well preserved and serve as some of the main attractions in Kitakyushu, along with a handful of temples and shrines, and modern commercial districts of malls, restaurants, and hotels. The surrounding karst landscape holds plenty of interest for outdoor enthusiasts, with rocky limestone outcrops and atmospheric caves to explore.

Where to stay in Kitakyushu

Kitakyushu boasts a good number of accommodations to host its relatively modest amount of visitors. Primarily located across the canal from the city hall, the choice includes a number of high-rise hotels and simple "ryokan" (guesthouses). Take a look to the north of the main train station for the most luxurious options in town, with extensive views of the sea and the old buildings of the dock. Holiday rentals provide a particularly budget-friendly option further inland in the main residential districts.
