Hayashi Department Store, Tainan
(4.2/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
The oldest in the city of Tainan, Hayashi Department Store features a memorable combination of traditional and modern. Ever since its opening in 1932, this building has been a favorite shopping and gathering place for citizens. It sustained severe damaged in World War II, but its most famous and important feature remained untouched--the first elevator in the country, which still works today. Here you can shop, have a meal, and see exhibits of historical memorabilia. Add Hayashi Department Store and other attractions to your Tainan trip itinerary using our Tainan family vacation planner.

  • 外觀看起來就非常特別,很喜歡這種不同於俗的風格。裡面的商品我最喜歡的是食品類產品,看起來包裝都異常精緻,除了讓人購物欲望爆漲之後,口水也快要流下來了。裡面的擺設品很多都是古董,即使不買東西,也可以來看看百貨的珍藏。 
  • Seems to have in Taiwan during the occupation of Japan, but this building is one of them. Is a Japanese design is a Japanese, the Japan department store owners also are affected by the war and the Department then did not use the revival opened in 2013. The building is where the scars of war remain, also introduce its history to shop there. First because I was ignorant to the history between Taiwan and Japan. Reminiscent of old retro stuff on well, fashionable. If stronger color souvenir thing one can easily buy a lot but lost to Taiwan where goods may be recommended.

  •  Comparatively upscale souvenir shop is? Grocery prices are reasonable and much more on the first floor, the second floor was none at all I get out of hand, and high-quality tea and crafts products! I think (around six o'clock evening crowded with tourists)-South stay at once customers even better.
