The Yahatahigashida area includes the Yahashida Steel Works, which supported Japan's modernization. In July 2015 it was registered as a World Heritage Site, attracting a great deal of attention. This area is full of fascinating exhibitions to learn about the transitions between ancient and modern times, including Inochi no Tabi Museum (Kitakyushu Museum of Natural History & Human History), Kitakyushu Innovation Gallery & Studio, and Kitakyushu Environment Museum. This area uses the space shuttle as its symbol, also the symbol of Space World.
