Mojiko

Mico

Jan 6, 2017

Mojiko in Kitakyushu, Fukuoka Prefecture is one of my favorite ‘retro’ towns. A thriving port in the late 19th Century, it is a popular tourist destination today. Thanks to its well-preserved historic buildings and quaint streets. You can see these all along the waterfront. These were once businesses related to the port, but now they are cafés, restaurants, museums and libraries.

In particular, I like the old brick style architecture of the old Moji Customs Building. To me, it reflects the history and development of trade in Japan. Maybe I’m too nostalgic, but this old world quality really appeals to me. Since it’s now an art gallery with free entry, I can easily enter and admire it.

If walking around the area makes you hungry, try the local specialty of grilled curry and delicious local rice. If you’re visiting in August, you’ll have another treat – a big fireworks display in the Kanmon Strait. Welcome to Mojiko!

福岡県北九州市にある門司港は北九州港を中心とした市街地のことを言います。海沿いの倉庫や歴史的建造物などが並んでおり、レンガ造の古い港町の雰囲気はとてもオシャレで、日本の貿易が発展した経緯を感じることができる観光地です。焼きカレーといった名物食べ物もあり、綺麗な町並みだけでなく美味しいご飯も味わえるのが魅力的です。夏には関門海峡での大きな花火大会もあるので、ぜひ一度来てみてほしいオススメスポットです。
