3.9
#1 of 10 in Neighborhoods in Kyushu-Okinawa
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.

  • The scenery in the old street is very beautiful, and the middle of the ship is a restaurant, very atmosphere. There are many European buildings and the pictures are very beautiful.

  • Artiest, ships and buildings of the Hotel Vista had better feelings. Mixed with rain rainy overcast it was too lonely. Also shop around on weekdays or deserted, it was also disappointing. I thought it better to come in the summer.

  • Because it is a pretty nice place pretty cold in the winter, and sea breeze was gusting not stay outside too much, sorry. I think I enjoy a little bit warmer and you can wander slowly lit up at night as well as much more.

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.
