Review of Shimonoseki Nabecho Post Office

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2019/12/29 Old post office
It is the oldest post office which is still in operation in Japan. It has almost 120 years old. As I was there on Saturday, it was however closed.
Reviewed:2020/04/26 現役の郵便局
唐戸エリアにいくつかあるレトロな建物のひとつです。こちらの建物は郵便局として建てられた建物で、現在も現役の郵便局として利用されていました。郵便局の入り口の前には、赤い円柱状のレトロな郵便ポストも設置されていて、建物の外観とあっていました。
Reviewed:2020/02/22 まだ現役郵便局
唐戸レトロの洋館で現存する下関の洋館では最古の物。明治33年(1900)の建築で国内最古の現役郵便局でもあり登録有形文化財に指定されています。まだまだ元気です。

          Heading west along Japan’s largest island, Honshu, the very last prefecture you’ll reach is Yamaguchi, separated from Kyushu by a small strip of water known as the Kanmon Straits, which the far-reaching harbor city Shimonoseki looks over. With water at every turn, the seafood of Yamaguchi is an indisputable highlight, and we’re not talking just the usual fish dishes - the notorious fugu, or puffer fish, is a Japanese delicacy that was discovered in Yamaguchi prefecture, making it the best place to try it out.
