Yahata port

  Yawata was a rural village with a small population of agriculture 
and fishing industry. And this place was decided in Parliament 
as the Japan’s Modern Steel Works construction site in 1897.
At that time, there were no construction machineries, the Steel 
Works was constructed with human power in just 4 years.
 

In April 2007, based on this theme of “innovation,” the Kitakyushu
Innovation Gallery & Studio (KIGS) opened in Yahata, Higashida, 
the first site of steel manufacturing in Japan’s modern age.
