Stories of Old Houses Part 2

In its heyday, the 5-storey Hayashi Department Store was the place to see and be seen. It has since reopened and awakes the memories of many.

During the Qing Dynasty, Wu Tiao Gang was a key trading port. As she flourished, rivers were turned into streets. What are left now are depilated old houses, which to many artists, are gems. Today, it is an avant-garde city.

An ancient dorm, an old movie and a young artist may be seemingly irrelevant elements. Put them together for some explosive sparks – a creative space, an arty hotel and an inspiring artist.

Beside the vegetable garden is an old house. A gentle breeze with a hint of cypress wood makes a beautiful afternoon. An old house in an ancient city, this is the house of Xiao-ou’s paternal grandmother. In this house, there are many memories that give the house an enriching new soul.

Although Tainan does not produce tea, its poetry literary edifies a strong rich culture, in turn evokes sentimentalism in Tainan residents. Hidden in the line-up of tea houses is an inheritance of many generations, as every house tells a story of the yesteryears.
