  • The place where the people of the flowers push. It's not very easy to get through the fabric of the U.S.-based building, the arrangementofs for each stop-and-fw. The courtyard also has a mini version of the four countries 88-year-old Hongfa Grand Tour to practice the temple of the source of the sacred stone, it is worth coming to see.

  • Hualien is a famous tourist spot. I went by sightseeing bus. A short walk from the bus parking lot, you can buy tickets at the entrance. When you re-enter, please get a stamp at the exit again, there is a water house as soon as you enter. It was a place where I could feel Japan very much while I was in Taiwan, such as Kobo Daishi and 88 Buddha statues in Shikoku. In an hour, you can look around one lap.
