Mojiko

Near the northern-most tip of Kyushu, in Fukuoka prefecture, is Mojiko. It overlooks the channel between Kyushu and Honshu islands, and has a clear view of Shimonoseki city. What makes the area unique is that it has a European influence, with red brick buildings amongst others.

The dock area is where some locals fish, and you can catch the sunset from there. There's a couple places nearby worth checking out for dinner. 

Kawarasoba Takase

This is from a chain that originated across in Yamaguchi prefecture. It's soba cooked on a traditional Japanese roof tile, topped with shredded egg, beef, nori, lemon and spicy daikon radish. We split one tile between two people, and it was decently filling with some local Mojiko Retro Beer, which they serve.

Bear Fruits

A small cafe right off from the main shopping area. They're most known for their super yaki curry, a curry perfectly oven-baked, full of cheese. Bear Fruits is pretty known to Japanese visitors, so don't be surprised if you have to wait for a little while.
