I visited the place where Albert Einstein stayed during his first visit to Japan in 1943. The house is now a seaman's club/association. It did not matter whether Einstein stayed there or not because it did give a good glimpse of a typical visitors lodge during that era with antique looking furniture, wash basin and stand alone bathtub. It was a good walk into the past.
The town of Mojiko is called "retro" because it is now only a place of interest for visitors - the streets were fairly empty except for lots of tourist walking around. I am told that the locals do not live in the town center but in the outskirts. Mojiko was once a booming trading port for ships but now it is a relic of its past glories. Strolling through the streets give you a sense of past history.
