It is very peaceful here. There are some buildings that look like those in Europe so it is really good for photo-taking. The port is also really pretty. There are many food stalls and souvenirs shops. I recommend walking one round through the area.

If you like eating, Mojiku is a good place to go. A lot of good food at the street, and you must try yaki-curry! Mojiku has banana man that you must take photo with. Moreover it is a quite harbour that you can relax yourself.
