  • Holiday travel to colleagues and went in. Aboard the funicular-Switzerland steep slope and slope rare car, aiming at the Summit. I think it is very good and eating lunch in the staff's views at the Summit was of course the lawn.

  • Really pretty at night. Ride a cable car and monorail, compared with Charley in Nagasaki, also in more fun to watch. It's the best for the both ends of the cable car seat the seat is very good and the monorail is an alarm clock static burn as quickly as possible with a view to this night.

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.
