    There were already many people visited during the day.   Indeed rice vermicelli (米粉) is a famous Hsinchu! Rice heaped a lot of shops were being served.    An atmosphere similar to Keelung around temples, shops, visited the Keelung miaokou night city ~ and I thought. In the atmosphere so lively, like Japan's tourist market, just being there can be fun.
