Hayashi Department Store, Tainan

(4.2/5 based on 240+ 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.

  • 充滿歷史的百貨公司~ ㄧ進去感覺好復古喔! 電視節目才看到的舊型電梯,可惜這次沒機會搭乘人好多喔! 一樓一樓走上去,每個樓層的樓梯間都有不同的擺設~ 喜歡裡面給人懷舊的感覺,走到屋頂還看得到日式神社⛩️ 屋頂的神社針對很特別! 
  • For tourist-oriented shops, many groups. Special elevator just takes a long time for the above climbed on the stairs. And a single southern specialties and souvenirs like a lot. People who like retro is here.

  • 漫步於全台僅存的商場型態的古蹟-林百貨,彷彿身旁流動的仍是二十世紀初期的氛圍,晃晃悠悠漫漫韻味,而保存下來的電梯,似乎喃喃訴說著曾經的風華......
