Mojiko Station, Kitakyushu

(3/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
See a fine example of period architecture at Mojiko Station, the oldest station on the line and one of the town's most cherished landmarks. The station opened in 1891, though the celebrated Neo-Renaissance building dates back to 1914. Symbolic of the growth in wealth and industry in the region through the development of trade with the Asian continent, the station building also acts as a gateway to other architectural highlights in the town, located in the surrounding streets. Note that due to reconstruction, parts may be under scaffolding--check the latest reviews.

  • This station is the northernmost station of the Kyushu, and in the end station of the beginning it will be. I think was still not connected to mainland and train here was the farthest station, branch line track is fan-shaped, with plenty of that over here, all lines up against the home landscape is quite an unusual sight. Sightseeing with the mojiko retro around the station filled the historic station building is under construction does not this feature is suitable for the station history is recommended! Incidentally, the kanmon Strait Fireworks station Moji side here. Congestion from the end is really amazing. Aiming station straight people are biased, so take 1 hour or more and then ventured to the path selection areas and will arrive in 10 minutes. Unintentionally himself last year using that route too early on, I was surprised (laughs
