Came to beautiful Hualien, this time we stayed in Ji’an, HualienKanazawa Residence, We both highly recommend it after our stay. The rural style close to nature and the simple way of life are like walking into a paradise, calm and comfortable.

In addition, we also like the small balcony in the room, the exclusive space full of greenery, get up in the morning and go to the balcony to enjoy the sun, drink a cup of tea or coffee, without letting us think, should we return to the basics and pursue this ordinary happiness? Woolen cloth! Let’s introduce to you all about this homestay that Jeffy loves so much. What is so attractive about it?

Kanazawa Residence is mainly divided into several accommodation areas. Before moving in, you need to enter the tree nest restaurant Check in with the title Kanazawa Residence. Although it has been in business for nearly 20 years, the overall environment will not give people an old feeling at all! The densely growing plants are full of business and permeated with a vigorous atmosphere. Perhaps this is what makes the "green buildings" developed by the residents of Kanazawa to be environmentally friendly!

▲Check in at Shuwo Restaurant before moving in

Shuwo Restaurant has a vast hinterland. In addition to several high-quality homestays, there are also a large banyan tree, large grasslands and ponds for tourists to relax and play. The owner of the homestay also provided badminton rackets and simple ball equipment. Children enjoy the sun in Hualien together, and the parent-child friendly environment is definitely the first choice for family outings! Seeing this large open space, Jeffy suddenly recalled his childhood, and remembered that he played baseball with his father in the grand plaza of grandma's house.

At the door of the tree nest restaurant, we also happened to ran into a little black cat. The cat was so afraid of life. He seemed to be a frequent visitor here? So he approached our feet and snored, and lay down and started purring. The scene completely subdued our cat slaves! Let's squat down and pet the cat's high butt 😆

After placing a double bed, there is still plenty of space in the aisle. There are tables and chairs at the other end of the room where you can sit down and watch TV. In order to record our staying experience in real time, we also brought a computer to work on the computer desk for a while.


There is a large floor-to-ceiling window in the room with good lighting. The next morning the sun lightly penetrates, quietly awakening us who are sleeping, let us continue to explore this beautiful town. The floor-to-ceiling windows opened up to a small balcony with a set of tables and chairs.
