Mojiko Retro, Kitakyushu

3.9
A major international and domestic port in the 19th century, Mojiko Retro now operates primarily as a center for tourism, with many authentic Maijo and Taisho buildings renovated and housing museums, cafes, and eateries. From the majestic Mijoki Station, inspired by the architecture of Rome's Termini Station, take a stroll along a boulevard of historic sites, including a former customs house converted into a free art gallery. After the novelty of walking across the Blue Wing drawbridge, don't miss panoramic views from the top of Mojito Retro Observation Room, a 103 m (337 ft) tower overlooking the entire port. At the end of boulevard, Kaikyo Plaza provides a wealth of restaurants, all serving the local delicacy yaki curry.

  • It was very uninspiring, came to lunch was a retro feel that the weather is very good and could not. Many foreigners, had photos taken all over the place. Our famous baked Curry, I went back. Will be good when the place from Kokura station from Moji port station 10 minutes away, so little time.

  • Because it was expected to stay in Shimonoseki, on the drive the tourist was mojiko retro. Old Moji customs building and former Moji Mitsui Club House fun or sightseeing and Harbor walk through the shop (souvenir shop), to hang out. The pedestrian drawbridge to the old customs house. Bridge to 6 times a day, so if you have time it is good to see.

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.
