Night view in Kokura in wintertime is fantastic!
Kokura castle was beautifully lit up!















City of Kokura is beautiful with wide roads and huge buildings.
It is totally different from my hometown Tokyo.

There is a cool shopping mall near Kokura castle too.
It was nice to walk around the neighbourhood.









Main streets around Kokura station are busy and lively even in night time.
There are so many good restaurants, izakayas, bars and more!

This street called “Uomachi-shotengai” is the very first shopping district with an arcade in Japan.









I will try many izakayas in Kokura next time!
