The Kokura Shinkansen Entrance area spreads out into the area north of Kokura Station. Aruaru City and Kitakyushu Manga Museum, as subculture points of origin, have become popular among many young people. The group of factories lined up along the coastline also creates a beautiful nightscape. The tall smokestack given the friendly nickname "Kitakyushu Iron Tree" is lit up with vivid colors, its bloom adding romance to the atmosphere.
