Kokura Castle Area

Experience the atmosphere of a historical castle town

The Kokura Castle area is in the central part of Kokurakita-ku. Spring at Katsuyama Park, where Kokura Castle is located, sees 300 cherry trees in full bloom, and autumn sees the surrounding keyaki (Japanese zelkova) trees displaying their autumn foliage, both creating a feast for visitors' eyes. Step across the Tokiwa Bridge, which straddles the Murasaki River, and into Uomachi and you'll find Tanga Ichiba (Tanga Market), Kitakyushu's kitchen. This shopping district, brimming with vigor, is a treasure trove of local gourmet dishes. It's a particularly popular area among tourists visiting Kitakyushu.
