  • To go up, you can use cable car and then climb for a while (i had not breakfast yet but it's still okay). Once you reach the peak, you can see the whole Kitakyushu city. I was going there in afternoon and it's very good, but some people recommend to go there during evening-night. Make sure you have a good camera.
