Mojiko Retro Highmart
Mojiko Retro's landmark, designed by the master architect Kurokawa Kisho
This is a high-rise apartment designed by the world-famous Japanese architect Kurokawa Kisho.
Featuring an impressive exterior of chic gray-colored outer walls with many small windows neatly arranged, this building has become a landmark of Mojiko.
It also boasts the unique design of a helipad, a landing area for helicopters, on the rooftop.
On the first floor, panels of original designs drawn by Kurokawa himself and other materials are exhibited.
On the top floor of this 103-meter-high building, the Mojiko Retro Observation Room provides an expansive view of the Kanmon Strait, the Kanmon Bridge, and even the Karato district in Shimonoseki City, Yamaguchi Prefecture, across the strait.
