Mojiko Train Station The station is being hoarded up for renovation but is still operative. It is one of the oldest train station in Kyushu that started operation in 1891. The structure looks old with many artefacts on display. It looks more like a museum than an operational train station. You need to alight here if you are going to... More

This station is well frequent by regular students and train masters especially come out with whistles to herald the next train arrival. I most appreciate the friendliness of the train masters, whose enthusiasm to communicate, surpassed language barriers.

This station was opened about 120 years ago. It's famous for a European style station building. However it is under construction now due to renovation until 2018. I didn't see original design of the station. I've found some interesting things in the station. Old drinking water machine, nostalgic toilet and old signage of the station. I will come back after...

They were renovating the station in December when I was there, but there is still a few things to see, and this is where you get off and on the train to Mojiko Retro

We arrived in by train, only to find the station completely under renovation and the courtyard outside that usually has a fountain etc all shut off and closed. Definitely no photo opportunities. We then wandered down to the waterfront and I realize this is a little town but it definitely lacked a real 'wow' factors and things to do and... More

The reason for the poor review is that the station is being renovated so you cant see anything of the old world station building at the moment. So if you are keen to see this iconic building save your visit until after the renovations are complete

This is billed as a retro style area. You are greeted with old time music piped through the pa system. There are rickshaws to take you around for a cost. I didn't find the steam locomotive station, but went for a look at the port. It is more like a small sea villiage. The ferry leaves for here to go... More
