  • It was just a place with shops, house etc decorated in Japanese style. Really nothing much special..  more »
  • A small commerical area where you can try local foods and drinks. However it is the decor of the village that is impressive!  more »
  • Not sure what else is available in Xitou but best that this location would be a 'by the way' place. Interesting place with Japanese monsters as the theme but that's the most there is.  more »

  • Lots of foods stall and interesting souvenirs shops at a reasonable price. The milk biscuit stick is a must buy here. Very nice, not too sweet but crispy. The spicy hell ramen was rated by my husband who said it's very nice and super spicy. The ambience here was very relaxing as they performances now and then.
  • Very touristy spot, great for kids. The location is based on a tv cartoon show. They have a live show with the characters with some suggestive dance motions. Not what westerners are used to. It's pretty expensive to buy anything but the kids will love it. Walking distance from Leader Hotel Chitou and the park.
  • Worth to visit. Everything is fun here. You can buy the special bread, beer and drink. If you love selfie, this will be a spot for you.
  • Cute little tourist spot with nice Japanese style architecture. Fun for families.
  • Cool place to visit and bring the kids. Personally i think its best at night.
