Kitakyushu

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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Kitakyushu: Old Ito Denemon House (in Iizuka), Nogata Municipal Coal Memorial Museum (in Nogata) and Three-Story Pagoda of Buzen Kokubunji Temple (in Miyako-machi). There's still lots to do: visit Mojiko Retro, explore the historical opulence of Kokura Castle, make a trip to Old Mojimitsui Club, and stroll through Hiraodai.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Kitakyushu fast, fun, and easy.
