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.

  • Well it seems this side of Kyushu, followed by Korea, even colder than it looked and seemed a good place to walk. Still, it seemed to me more would be better, warm January-la-it's kinda good. Save when eating the Curry. I also have a beach-side in Kitakyushu Bonnie view real. Walking is also naturally also in Shimonoseki.

  • But not well known. Mojiko retro, weather permitting, you can enjoy sunset. In the evening and drawbridge per filled with amateur photographers. Tourists also wavers as the iPhone. If the car is breathtaking sunsets from the mekari Observatory. By all means! Look at us. Rising Sun is found in the East of the port of MOJI, large area beaches and Kita h. Beach.
