Kick off your visit on the 1st (Tue): steep yourself in history at Old Ito Denemon House, then learn more about the world around you at Kitakyushu Museum of Natural History & Human History, and then get to know the resident critters at Itozu no Mori Zoological Park. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: take a stroll through Mojiko Retro, find something for the whole family at Space World, and then engage your brain at Kitakyushu Culture and Science Museum for Youth.

There's still lots to do: let little ones run wild at Ohori Park, make a trip to Hakata Station, stroll through Uminonakamichi Seaside Park, and learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Fukuoka City Zoological Garden.
