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.
Explore Kitakyushu's surroundings by going to Shimonoseki (Karato market & Tsunoshimao Bridge), Dazaifu (Dazaifu Tenman-gu, Kyushu National Museum, &more) and Ruriko Temple Five-Story Pagoda (in Yamaguchi). The adventure continues: wander the streets of Mojiko Retro, examine the collection at Kyushu Railway History Museum, get a new perspective on nature at Kitakyushu Museum of Natural History & Human History, and step into the grandiose world of Kokura Castle.

To see photos, other places to visit, traveler tips, and other tourist information, refer to the Kitakyushu trip itinerary builder site.

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major aiport is Fukuoka Airport. In February, daily temperatures in Kitakyushu can reach °C, while at night they dip to °C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
