Everyone here seems used to clueless foreigners and does their best to help. Some shop employees speak excellent English while the train station staff use tablets with English translation text apps. Very helpful.

Rather new station which is very spacious and has an open roof which can be closed as well. Never seen this before in a station like this. The overall layout is very convenient. Very pleasant and relaxed station.

Kokura station is the 2nd biggest station in Kyushu. You will think that you are in Tokyo and not in kitakyushu if you visit this place, the station building are connected to AMU plaza and really close to major attraction like kokura castle complex etc

Kokura station is an active local station, size is underestimated. From food stalls to large malls, nothing goes amiss. Pure active active station, for Japanese culture, you will need to travel afar. Easy access and convenience. Not designed for tourist but great urban exploration.

In this building, there are JR Kokura station ( local line and shinkansen line), mono- rail train station, restaurants, shopping mall. Also this building has a hotel, thus it is convenient when we arrive at Kokura station midnight.
