An important gateway for trade and travel between Honshu and Kyushu, the city of Kitakyushu has an old industrial waterfront and provides access to a number of natural sites across the wider region.
Venture out of the city with trips to Beppu (Hells of Beppu, Kamado Jigoku, & more), Shimonoseki (Tsunoshimao Bridge & Karato market) and Dazaifu (Dazaifu Temmangu, Hie Shrine, & more). And it doesn't end there: explore the fascinating underground world of Akiyoshido, head outdoors with Mt Sarakura, steep yourself in history at Usajingu Shrine, and take a stroll through Mojiko Retro.
