An important gateway for trade and travel between Honshu and Kyushu, the city of Kitakyushu has an old industrial waterfront and provides access to a number of natural sites across the wider region.
Explore Kitakyushu's surroundings by going to Nogata Municipal Coal Memorial Museum (in Nogata), Three-Story Pagoda of Buzen Kokubunji Temple (in Miyako-machi) and Old Ito Denemon House (in Iizuka). The adventure continues: take a stroll through Mojiko Retro, get outside with Mt Sarakura, walk around Green Park, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Itozu no Mori Zoological Park.

To find where to stay, traveler tips, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Kitakyushu holiday planning tool .

New York City, USA to Kitakyushu is an approximately 26-hour combination of car and flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 14 hours traveling from New York City to Kitakyushu. Traveling from New York City in May, you can expect nighttime temperatures to be a bit warmer in Kitakyushu, with lows of 61°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel to Toho-mura.
