Natural History Museum Museum
Walk with awe-inspiring moving dinosaurs at Kitakyushu Museum of Natural History & Human History, an impressive three-story establishment that traces the history of evolution from before the appearance of life on Earth. Get a close-up view of the skeletons of a ferocious T-Rex, a giant-necked brontosaurus, and many other extinct species in the museum's basement. Study stuffed animals from the area and listen to the story of how humanity developed in Kyushu. Children can play in a neolithic-era house or perform their own experiments in a handful of labs. You can buy stone samples and stuffed toys at the museum's well-stocked souvenir shop.

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.
