I visit this Mojiko Retro Area when i Stay at Fukuoka City, so i do this as an Excursion Visit. When we arrive in this area, we can see so many building with a European Architecture and it looks nice. Here we also visit Norfolk Port which is used in the old time for Trading.

It is a very quaint place. Much more European looking than I expected. A great place for lunch is the pirate ship on the harbour. Very good value and lovely food if a limited menu.

Might ba a good idea to go there if you are staying in Kitakyushu anyway - comparable to Kobe Harbourland, but much smaller.i

As others have mentioned, Mojiko Retro is a tranquil waterfront tip comprising some ancient buildings, a shopping mall and a beautiful harbour. It is actually similar to Kobe Harbourland and MM21 in Yokohama. I always have a passion for waterfront complexes like such as they do offer you a relaxing experience, especially when there are sunshine and sea breeze. If... More

We read about the charms of KitaKyushu and especially this hidden gem of Mojiko Retro so we planned a visit here in our visit to Fukuoka. Travel time from TenJin sta. is close to an hour and cost more than 2500 yen. Welcome to the Northern most part of Kyushu! Just across the Shimonoseki Strait is this little jewel of... More

Just across the Shimonoseki Strait, you will find Mojiko. This is a little jewel of Kitakyushu city. Once a trading port with the US and the UK, there are many beautiful western styled buildings that line the streets. Even the Mojiko station is built in the Neo-Renaissance style. Several buildings are heritages sites, but you can also find a small... More

A little gem at the end of the train line. Kitayushyu has done a great job in regenerating an old working port into a nice little attraction that is worth a visit. Lots of nice little shops and cafes to see, bands playing, boat trips around the harbour and so on. Its a bit like Japan does an impression of... More

This lovely little seaport revived for tourist purposes is amazingly successful. Such a refreshing change from busy, colourless Kokura, it's like an English seaside town with a band playing, the theme from "Skyfall" when we visited, shops from Main Street USA as one finds in Disneyland, Japanese outlets selling fish products and candy floss, sideshows like the trained monkey jumping...

I have read that the entire area is being developed as a tourist attraction and that is how it appears. We visited on Sunday and it was full of tourists, a band playing old rock and roll hits, an exhibition of vintage cars (more Beetles than I saw in my recent visit to the VW factory in Wolfsburg!!). Little shops... More
