See, Play, Experience Mojiko Area

Sankiro was a ryotei (traditional Japanese restaurant) built in 1931 that represented the prosperity of the Port of Moji. After discontinuing its business and being sold, the restaurant resumed its business in 2014.

A Japanese-style room called "Haiku Room" on a corner of the third floor provides a wonderful panoramic view of the Kanmon Strait. It is said that the famous haiku poet Takahama Kyoshi composed a haiku in this room when visiting the restaurant. In this room, the haiku by Kyoshi is exhibited along with a haiku by the pioneering female haiku poet Sugita Hisajo, who studied haiku under the guidance of Kyoshi.
