Kyushu Photo Gallery

Former Mitsui O.S.K Line Building


Former Mitsui O.S.K Line Building
This is a wooden 2-storey building consisting of an octagonal observatory

and vivid orange-colored walls. It was built in 1917 as the Osaka Shosen

Moji Branch Office.

At that time, the observatory was used for looking out over Moji Port, 
and the building was utilized as a waiting room for continental voyages.
At present the building serves as a gallery for the works of 
Watase Raizo (who is an illustrator from Kitakyushu City), 
as well as the locale for the Moji-ko Art Mura (Art village) called
 “Minato-no Machieiru”.
