Mojiko Retro, Kitakyushu

(3.9/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
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. Make Mojiko Retro a centerpiece of your Kitakyushu vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Kitakyushu tourist route planner.

  • It seems to Moji port retro is currently the station is being renovated, attracting tourist attractions. Scattered spots around the station so terrible in a short period of time.

  • 在下關不需要安排太多的時間。 日清長和紀念館還有李鴻章到走一走即可- 大概抓個兩個小時到3小時就可以完成。 但是門司港的燒咖喱一定要吃。 冬天的時候海風非常的大,便利商店的傘一點用處都沒有⋯⋯盡量不要再下雨的時候去。  more »
  • Giving the buildings from the Meiji to Taisho, exotic exoticism. Me reminds of bygone days boasted of glory as the three major ports in Japan. The night Richard p is to produce strong feeling of Taisho romanticism.
