  • See building guideboard matsuzono annex that enters a gatepost and old huge pine trees across the grounds. Japan occupation, grade of officer for invitation, military said. Still have air-raid shelter beside the building. You can see freely inside the building also shelters, none is saved completely. Admission charges 50 Yuan (Japan Yen JPY 200). Children under 12 years old and 65-year-old is more than half. Located on a nice vantage point slightly north of hill from the Centre of the old town of the Lotus Flower, saw sea of lotus flowers from the garden.

  • 這棟日遺建築,是大戰後期徵兵的辦公室使用,它歷經了日治時期的台灣日本徵兵,終戰後的美軍俱樂部及退輔會接管時期,與荒廢無人使用差點被拆建飯店,到護古跡爭取到投入復舊加入文創與庭院咖啡,這個點是觀海看山,眺覽市區的最佳地點,古松依舊,人事已非。遠眺大洋,視已茫茫。來看看吧!  more »
