Mojiko Retro (Moji Port Rerto District)4.0
The Port of Moji (Mojiko) in Fukuoka is an international trade port opened in 1889 and located at the northern edge of Kyushu Island. Its prosperity as a transport hub attracted many Western-style buildings housing shipping companies and trading firm around it.
"Mojiko Retro" is the retro-style district near this port with a fusion of old-world and modern city. It is a restored reproduction of the district around the port in olden times.
Quite nice old buildings built from the Meiji era to Taisho era including the wooden Moji Station still remain, and re-create the romantic atmosphere of the Taisho era.
Moji is counted as one of the three major ports of Japan (Yokohama, Kobe, Moji) at that time, and had become an important international trade center.
The influences from various cultures can be found, and it is one of the highlights in Mojiko Retro. Also it is chosen as one of the 100 Best Townscapes.
In this district, various buildings have been preserved and are open to visitors, including the iconic Mojiko Station, former Moji Mitsui Club, where Einstein stayed, and former Kyushu Railway Headquarters (currently Kyushu Railway History Museum).
Access : a few mins walk from Moji Station on JR Line.
