This is a mini Shinto shrine built by the Japanese immigrants previously. It is well-maintained and demonstrates the influence of Japanese in Taiwan previously. There is a souvenir shop located in the compound of the shrine which sells cute souvenirs and wooden plates on which...More

In 1917, Kawabata Manchuria built a church in the Chiyen village to protect the homesickness of immigrants by the power of religious stability. Chian old name is Cikasuan. After the "Cikasuan Incident," the Japanese opened up a new immigrant village here. Most of the immigrants...More

when you heard of it, you may said it is just a shrine, just like a little shrine in Japan. But after our tour guide introduced the material of the building, you can't believe those incredible wood already stand there for few hundred years, and...More

吉安 慶修院, "Keishuin" - a restored feature from the Japanese colonial era. 88 statues representing the Shikoku pilgrimage route. Not terribly well exhibited for its importance. This is how after doing 25 in Japan, I finally managed to finish the circuit ;-)

This place is quite near to Hualien City, only about 10 mins away. It was a pleasant attraction but I won't say it is something that is 'must see'. It is well maintained and things are nicely organized with explanation arranged neatly. Adults entrance fee...More

If you are passing through Ji'An, perhaps on a bike route, this little Japanese temple is worth a 20-30-minute stop if you are interested in the Japanese occupation and colonization of Taiwan or the Japanese Buddhist devotional practices in Taiwan. The complex has a lovely...More
