Moji, Japan Cruise Port

Moji was amongst the five cities that merged in 1963 to create Kitakyushu City. Currently, the region known as Moji, or Moji-ku, is considered to be a ward of the Kitakyushu City, which is located in the country's Fukuoka Prefecture. The port at Moji has served as an international trade port since the 19th century when Suematsu Kencho made it into a port with the financial support of Shibusawa Eiichi. However, the port now serves more as a tourist destination that attracts many due to its old town flavor that is credited to the many well-maintained buildings that date back to the Taisho and Meiji Periods. Listed below are some of the recommended experiences, attractions, and activities that visitors could enjoy after cruising to Moji, Japan:

 

  • Visitors should not miss out on the opportunity to visit the Mojiko Retro District. The historical area was named a tourist site in 1995, and it has also been designated the status of being an Important Cultural Property of Japan. Additionally, there are many historical buildings to see.
     
  • Nature lovers and fans of botany, should pay a visit to the Shiranoe Botanical Gardens. The venue is quite beautiful and it offers a serene and tranquil environment that is also blessed with some stunning views of the Seto Inland Sea.
     
  • Visitors who have an interest in learning about the region's past should visit the reconstructed Kokura Castle. The original structure was built in 1602 in the Edo Period. It was destroyed in 1866 and the current one is a reconstruction that was completed in 1959.
     
  • Visitors should visit the Kitakyushu Manga Museum for a taste of Japan's unique art form that is portrayed in the Japanese comics, that are also known as manga. The museum's exhibits are primarily focused on the works of artists who have affiliations with the city.
