Mojiko Retro district

Mojiko Retro area History and historic sites / See / Play

The Port of Moji (Mojiko) is an international trade port opened in 1889 and located at the northern edge of Kyushu.

Its prosperity as a transport hub attracted many Western-style buildings housing shipping companies and trading firms around it. The Mojiko Retro district is a restored reproduction of the district around the port in olden times.

In this district, various buildings have been preserved and are open to visitors, including the iconic Mojiko Station, former Moji Mitsui Club, where Einstein stayed, and former Kyushu Railway Headquarters (currently Kyushu Railway History Museum).

You can immerse yourself in the atmosphere of Japan in the late 19th to early 20th centuries here.
