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.

  • Ate in the restaurant next to the retro car park is passed by and stopped the baked Curry is delicious cake after cake and coffee. Exactly on old Moji customs building for viewing free music events with live bands and songs, was very beautiful Christmas I have lights when the Sun was. Upon visiting 11 / candle-lit night ride shuttle bus and went to Chofu garden and explore the castle town Chofu. 12/31 on new year's Eve 22:30-seems there's whistle and Fireworks countdown ago the 30.

  • I believe is coming in several times the port of MOJI, Kitakyushu, few sites. I eat a curry lunch, we walked for a while. Curry's are plentiful, but pretty crowded is famous. I think if you go into the shop and taste is everywhere equal to, because I have noticed no problem either.

  • Mojiko retro developed facing the kanmon Strait in Kitakyushu City Moji port area, the district saved. Preserved historic buildings built of Meiji, Taisho, early Showa era in the region, reopened and has been published. But also as historical monuments in emotional plenty of contemporary architecture-is harmonious and mojiko retro Observatory (31 stories), and also the course of history is condensed. Especially at night is lit up and a romantic atmosphere. It is maintained as well as good restaurants and even a day to explore the optimal location.
