Some historical buildings of about 100 years old from the time when Japan began the trade with the western world. Well restored.

We just loved this plc since we visited in Nov 2014. The Mojiko is also known as the Retro Historic District, a charming port town along the Kanmon Strait (end of the JR Kagoshima Line). The site is only 10 minute of walk from the Mojiko Station, which itself is another tourist spot and is a designated national important cultural... More

Mojiko is a small old international trading port of Kitakyushu city that located on north of Kyushu island. Now it is not run any port activities. There are many antique western style building around this place. Japanese love to visit here for relaxation. Places around there are very nice.

There are a dozen of old buildings which were built about 100 years ago. The Moji port opened for international trading 120 years ago. After that many trading, shipping, financial and travel companies built their offices near the port. Nowadays those buildings were renovated, and reopened as public spaces for tourists. There are many interesting architectures in the town. I... More

The building restorations of old buildings are next to ultra- modern ones, and the straits and waterways lend a very nice charm to this area, ahich has attracted some good restaurants and bars as well. There is a very convenient and inexpensive ferry which takes you very near to the Shimonoseki Fish Market (takes bicycles, too!) so getting across either... More

A must do in my opinion, lots of neat old "retro buildings" in this port area. The view from the observation tower is excellent.

The site is only 10 minute of walk or so from the Mojiko Station. Walking around the area leisurely takes about 1 hour. That's when you may find a restaurant to try the popular local dish, "roasted curry," or start skimming through the souvenirs. The area includes a few restaurants, souvenir shops, the former custom office, the former biggest trade... More

From Mojiko to the Kanmon tunnel, there are a few museums, shops and food stalls along the way. Great for a walk.
