VISIT FUKUOKA

NTT Moji Telecommunication Museum

Erected in 1924 as the Telecommunications Division Building for the former Ministry of Posts and Communications’ Moji Post Office, this was the first building in Moji to be constructed with reinforced concrete. With parabolic arches and vertical lines as its theme, the building has a very high ceiling and continues to convey its sophisticated, Taisho Era modernity.
The first floor is the Telecommunication museum, where visitors will find telephones and telecommunication devices dating from the Meiji Era (starting in 1868) to the present day. There are also corners where visitors can enjoy having conversations using (implementing) an old-fashioned switchboard, as well as learn the basics about how phone calls are connected.
In front of the museum stands a replica of the first public telephone booths completed in Kyobashi, Tokyo in 1900. The replica, however, was designed with a lighthouse as its model, reflecting the retro-feel of the port town of Moji!
