Unparalleled opportunities for technical visits

Iron manufacturing in Japan began in Kitakyushu, and this is still one of the nation’s major manufacturing cities, especially for the iron and steel industry. This is a paradise for those interested in technical visits, with many well-preserved relics of past iron manufacturing, steel, coal, transportation and communications industries. Other popular tourist spots include the Space World theme park, the Mojiko Retro District containing the old station and other historical buildings, the Kanmon Straits, where the famous Battle of Dannoura took place, and the beautiful and unusual scenery of the local karst landscape.

Easily accessible international convention zone

The multi-facility International Convention Zone is designed for large-scale conventions. Connected to JR Kokura Station by pedestrian walkways, it comprises the Kitakyushu International Conference Center, the West Japan General Exhibition Center, hotels, commercial facilities and other convention-related facilities. The zone is just a 30-minute drive from Kitakyushu airport, which features 24-hour operation.
