Riverwalk Kitakyushu


Riverwalk Kitakyushu is a highly functional cultural, artistic, informational and commercial complex surrounded by lush greenery and historical sites (such as Katsuyama Park, Kokura Castle and the Murasaki River, just to name a few). The complex presents a conglomerate of colorful and unique buildings.
Riverwalk Kitakyushu was built as a part of Kitakyushu City’s redevelopment project. Aside from its commercial facilities, the complex features a full-scale theater (“Kitakyushu Performing Arts Center”) as well as NHK’s Kitakyushu Broadcast Station (which offers a tour) and Asahi Shimbun newspaper’s office. With the additions of the Nishinippon Institute of Technology in 2006 and the “Kitakyushu Municipal Museum of Art, Riverwark Gallery”, the complex has become a beacon of comprehensive culture.
Thanks to its wonderful location, visitors can enjoy a sense of openness combined with the natural setting provided by Katsuyama Park and the Murasaki River. The open-air cafe where visitors can relax while viewing riverside and park scenery as well as the plaza with its abundance of natural light offer fun places to get together!
