  • 打造成很日式風格的小村落,內部有飯店、許多餐廳、和具特色風格的造景,節慶時偶有表演,但腹地不大很快就逛完了,頂多就是一個可覓食且具有特色的地方,順道來玩即可。  more »
  • 很典型的觀光地點。人為營造出各式各樣的觀光資源,應該是以此來帶動溪頭的觀光產業,其實很不錯,至少當地人很用心推廣。  more »
  • 原本對妖怪村充滿期待,當天下雨,以為可以待個2-3小時,沒想到就像台灣其他老街、夜市一樣,除了硬是蓋出紡日的建築,其它陳設和商品與淡水無異。整點️小表演,一個人帶著天狗的面具,吸引孩子的目光。  more »

  • Very small, can finish all the walk path with just less than 5 minutes, not worth it if you just come to see this place, but the decoration still cool, and most of the staff make up to be like monster
  • Interesting place, unique from other sites in Taiwan. Pretty small, but the nearby forests have trails you can walk along and enjoy the scenery
  • Simply a tourist attraction. Good ford kids, but quite crowded.
  • One of the most hidden gem in Taiwan, hidden in the nice forest reserve. Great scene, Nice food, nice people.
  • Exotic atmosphere at night about this monster village , very close to the gate of forest.
