It seems like just a common neighborhood, or a living place that you can find most places in Kyushu area. The name of its train station made me confused as there were both of Moji and Mojiko which sounds similar. I saw many cartoon characters made by cardboard... and some banana man statue around the station and the city.

the train station was rebuilt in a renaissance style building. It looks nice. starbucks and a nice restaurant with local dishes upstairs Ricksaw rides (4000 yen for 2 for 15 min around town. train museum and other historical places. nice view of the kamon canal where large ships pass by. 5 min ferry across the canal to Karato (fish marhet) on Shimonoseki side at 400 yen per adult. Train takes 15 min, so ferry is a better deal if staying near Karato or trying to visit it. In Mojiko the famous dish is the baked curry. Many variations on that. I like the restaurant near the ferry with rear view windows facing the water. You can see it if looking from the ferry landing port..

JR Mojiko station was totally renovated in 2019, and Mojiko Retro area attracts now many tourists. There are many western buildings dated at the beginning of Meiji time, and they are quite well preserved. Indeed it was once an international terminal, in which many foreign passengers arrived every day. Even if you are not interested in architecture, it is really worth visiting.

Waterfront location. Small but with some interesting historic buildings. There's also a nice shopping plaza as well as some other shops outside.

I felt like I slipped back in time to Japan’s Taisho or Showa era. You can see some historical buildings there.
