The northern region of Kyushu was the first to be colonized by the Chinese and Koreans2

Before 1963 it was called North Kyushu Kitakyūshū, 北九州 until the city of Kitakyūshū was formed The name of the city means North Kyushu in Japanese To avoid confusion the name of the region was changed

It is the most urbanized and industrialized part of the Kyushu region2

For the purposes of development analysis, the area is construed to include Yamaguchi Prefecture on Honshū Although Yamaguchi not part of Kyushu, it is a functional satellite of the Kanmon Straits metropolitan area3

The region is part of the Taiheiyō Belt and comprises the Northern Kyushu Industrial Zone ja:北九州工業地帯
