Although Jeffy is a native of Chiayi, but when asked about Chiayi fun, he can only tell about Alishan. He is really not a qualified Chiayi person! When I returned to Chiayi this time, my father recommended a cultural and creative park in the east district of Chiayi City-Hinoki Village, It is really worth recommending to everyone! It used to be a staff dormitory during the Japanese Occupation. After World War II, it was converted into a staff dormitory for the Forest Service Bureau. After restoration, it developed into the first dormitory in Taiwan.Forest Cultural and Creative ParkIt is also the largest Japanese-style building complex in Taiwan.

Visiting Hinoki Senhuo Village is a holiday. Almost every Japanese-style house is lined up with many photographers. We happened to find a beckoning cat shop. Of course, we who love cats and love money should take a photo with this lovely shop. ?
I wandered around and came to the gardens in the park. The big rocks, bushes and pools look like the landscapes only found in the homes of Japanese nobles~
This time, because there was not much time reserved for staying, many shops just looked at the flowers. However, such a good-looking and easy-to-visit attraction must be in your pocket! If you visit Chiayi in the future, those who like to go shopping can reserve more time to savor here without the pressure of time, and it will feel more like a "forest life"!
