Kitakyushu best japan city attractions and sightseeing

Kitakyushu (北九州市 or "Northern Kyūshū") is a city located in Fukuoka prefecture, Kyushu, whichh is a Japan metropolitan city of two million people located midway between Tokyo Odaiba and Shanghai.

Kitakyushu is so valuable to miss the city tour. There are a lot of nice tourism sites and places to visit such as : museum, beach, Festivals, Space World, and the famous Kanmon Straits bridge.

Some of Kitakyushu atrractions and sightseeing :

Kanmon Strait and Mojiko Retro District
The Kanmon Strait separates the main island from Kyushu. This strait is where a number of major events in Japanese history occurred; there are many historical sightseeing spots and events here, such as the Mekari Festival. The Strait has long been a strategic point for marine traffic, and prospered from the Meiji era to the Taisho era as an international trading port. Presently, this area is one of the representative sightseeing areas of northern Kyushu. Major historical facilities in this area include such elegant western-style buildings as JR Mojiko Station, which has been designated a national important cultural asset, the Old Mitsui O.S.K. Lines Ltd. Building, highly praised as 'the beauty of the port,' and the Old Moji Mitsui Club, where Dr. and Mrs. Einstein once stayed. In addition there are a number of popular sightseeing facilities in the area, such as the KAIKYO DRAMASHIP, which specializes in the Strait and the Kyushu Railway History Museum, which is admired by railroad buffs. At night, buildings, ships and piers around the Port are lit up to create a fantastic scene. For visitors, the view from the observation room of Mojiko Retro District is a must-see.

Castle town Kokura
Kokura is located at an important point for both marine and land traffic. Since the Edo era, Kokura has flourished as a castle town. Kokura Castle, the symbol of the town, was founded by Tadaoki Hosokawa in 1602. The only castle remaining in Fukuoka Prefecture, it attracts many tourists. The castle precincts include Kokura Castle Japanese Garden, where visitors can learn traditional Japanese rules of decorum, and Matsumoto Seicho Memorial Museum, a memorial to the world-famous writer and his great achievements. For these reasons, this area is known as the cultural area of Kitakyushu. To enjoy dietary culture in Kitakyushu, tourists should visit the Tanga Market at the center of Kokura. The bustling market is home to numerous shops serving various specialties, including local fresh foods and delicacies. Although it provides residents with daily foods, it is also popular with tourists as a sightseeing spot for enjoying lively local color.

Mori Ogai house in Kokura.
Literary giant Ogai wrote his Kokura Nikki (Kokura Diary) here. Ogai was based at the castle at the turn of the 19th-20th century when it was a military base. He was born in Tsuwano in Shimane prefecture.

Wakamatsu Area
Wakamatsu is a port town linked to the other side of the bay by the vermillion Wakato Bridge and shuttle ferries. In the old days it was the largest port for shipping coal from Japan. The aged townscape, with the old red brick building of Furukawa Mining Co., Ltd., a scene that looks as though it came straight out of an old movie, reflects the prosperity of those days. Mt. Takato offers a panoramic view of Wakato Bridge, Dokai Bay, Wakamatsu Area, Tobata Area, Yahata Area and as far as the Kanmon Strait. At night, the beauty of this mountain cannot be missed. To the north, the Wakamatsu Area is bordered by a beautiful coastline.

Yahata-Higashida and Hobashira
The Higashida Area attracts the most attention in Kitakyushu today. A representative site in this area is Space World, where visitors can enjoy various attractions and theatrical shows. The Kitakyushu Museum of Natural History & Human History, where visitors can trace the 'History of life' for human beings and nature, from the beginning of the earth 4.6 billion years ago to the present day, is also in this area, as is the Kitakyushu Environment Museum, which provides information on the history of Kitakyushu in overcoming pollution and environmental problems. From the Higashida Area, visitors can view Mt. Sarakura, 622 meters above sea level, rising in the hilly sections. The mountain also features the longest cable railway in Kyushu, with a sky lift that carries the passengers to the summit, which offers a 360-degree panoramic view. The night view of the panorama that gleams as though studded with jewels is known as the 'million dollar night view.'

From Hiraodai to Kawachi
At the karst tableland of Hiraodai, visitors can enjoy nature to such an extent that it's hard to believe they're in Kitakyushu with a million people. The singular spectacle of endless pure white limestone rocks resembles a large flock of sheep grazing in a meadow. This tableland offers a number of sightseeing spots, including Hiraodai Countryside Park and several limestone caves. In the Kawachi area, visitors can enjoy a relaxing time at Kawachi Hot Spring.
