  • I took the photo, without expecting is also not particularly Railfan, but visited the old sleeper car and put directly.  Especially driving video is so much fun, and pretty much crackled. You can visit because it focused on rail transport in Japan foreigners are less settled. That was really empty on weekdays because I was surprised. And on the other side of the station from Moji port on the opposite side would. It may be a bit more clarity, the show is better.

  • 展示館鄰近門司港站旁,這應該是鐵道迷會很喜歡的地方~~ 室外展示非常多有年代的歷史火車頭~~ 室內則室展列日本火車的歷史,及火車標誌,火車便當,沒有電腦票年代的火車車票,及各種記號的打孔機,非常有意思! 一樓有展示場,有日本近年來各式各線火車模型,奔馳在軌道上,連接城市的距離,讓參觀者一日了然日本火車演進時間及動態! 展示場不大,但參觀一圈,對於日本火車歷史也有相對的了解!
