The Port of Moji served as a hub for exchanges with many places around the world, including Dalian, China, with which Moji was connected by a sea-lane. This building, the former Dalian Route Terminal, was constructed in 1929 as an international passenger terminal.
Its art-deco design using geometric patterns tells us how the Port of Moji flourished at that time.
The building currently houses a hall, a multipurpose space, and the Matsunaga Bunko library, which exhibits materials on movies collected since 1945, including movie posters and scenarios, and is loved as a center of cultural information.
