  • We visited at the time and stay away from walking, limited travel in the last day morning. Located on a vantage point on a hill of the Hualien city and sea are. With overcast skies, but very beautiful views. Second floor of building with gardens at the bench, so to rest while enjoying views. Old buildings in good condition and again and the art spot and utilized. Exhibition was held during the visit. Heritage of buildings such as the old oven had used air-raid shelter and the American military has gone through exhibits, is very interesting.
