Fly to Taiwan

We took a 3.5- hour flight to Taiwan from Haneda/Tokyo.

There is only a 1-hour time difference between Japan and Taiwan.
There was a drenching summer shower in the every evening.
It was so lucky we never opened an umbrella.
The lower temperatures following the shower brought us a comfortable night walk.


The first tourist spot/ Jiufen.
Jiufen was only an isolated village until 1893, when gold was discovered in the area.
The resulting gold rush hastened the village's development into a town,
and reached its peak during the Japanese rule.
I felt a more deep connection to this country than I thought.

Jiufen also became popular in 2001,
when its downtown was used as a model in the anime movie Spirited Away.
日本では、九份が2001年に公開された映画 「千と千尋の神隠し」のモデルになった町として紹介され

Without taking pictures of dogs or cats, I couldn't walk through the market !!
どこへ行っても、犬 猫を見ると撮らずにおれません(笑)
Taiwan is absolutely a Dog Friendly country.
From luxurious to street stalls, many Taiwan restaurants serve Hai Hsieng food.
Most recipes are to Japanese taste.
This restaurant was full of almost Japanese tourists.
ほとんどの台湾料理は日本人好みです。 どれもおいしかったです
