13:00-15:30 Tour to Kokura Castle and the River Walk

Kokura Castle (小倉城) in Kitakyushu, Japan was built by Hosokawa Tadaoki in 1602. It was the property of the Ogasawara clan (from Harima) between 1632 and 1860. The castle was burnt down in 1866 in the war between the Kokura and Chōshū clans. Mori Ogai was based at the castle at the turn of the 19th-20th century when it was a military base. The keep was reconstructed in 1959, and the castle was fully restored in 1990. The Matsumoto Seicho museum and castle garden were opened in 1998. The old Japanese-style pre-Brunton lighthouse from Shirasu is in the castle grounds.

Thanks to its wonderful location surrounded by rich nature and history, RIVERWALK KITAKYUSHU gives one a sense of openness, of being connected with the nature of Murasaki River and Katsuyama Park — without going outside! With open-air cafes with idyllic views of the river and the park, as well as open spaces filled with natural light, RIVERWALK KITAKYUSHU offers a gathering place where even a simple stroll is great fun.

16:00-17:00 Visit to TOTO Museum

TOTO Ltd. was founded in 1917. For 100 years since then, TOTO has taken part in Japan’s modernization by achieving ideals of its founder to bring a healthy, cultural lifestyle to the Japanese people. To continue to develop in step with society, TOTO believes it is important to retain these founding principles and correctly interpret company history, both of which are critical to pass our corporate values to future generations. This museum was built with this goal in mind. Together with culture and history of plumbing equipment, it is hoped the museum provides visitors an opportunity to learn about the philosophy behind TOTO Manufacturing and how products have developed.
