#1 of 10 in Neighborhoods in Kyushu
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.

  • Moji, which was the base of continental trade, and its surroundings. After the arson of the station building, it seems to have been rebuilt over time. I didn't eat anything special, but there is no doubt that it is a good atmosphere. It is a place that I want to visit by all means though it is a place where the plain is few surrounded by the mountain and the sea, and it was an important place in the history of Japan.
