The area around Wakato Bridge, which takes its name from Wakamatsu and Tobata, is in central Kitakyushu. Walking along the promenade which commands a view of Wakato Bridge and Dokaiwan (Dokai Bay) will let you feel the nostalgic atmosphere of a port town. The Taishomachi shopping district, in the vicinity of the bridge, is also a little-known tourist attraction in the city.
