Hayashi Department Store, Tainan

(300+ reviews on the web)
Department Store
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.

  • This department store is like a museum but most of what you can find (art, clothes, local goods, food) you can buy it. There is even a restaurant on the top floor and a nice place to take pictures on the roof. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Very comfortable place for tourists. Going back to the old days. Atmosphere definitely fascinating. Food is good and easy. Café offers excellent city view.
  • I love this place so much. The architecture and interior is so well-kept after so many decades, the elevator is very antique. It is quite a small dept store, but they sell beautiful, artistic, high-quality things. Make sure you go up to the rooftop, they have a shinto shrine, as well as cafes to relax and enjoy the atmosphere.
  • The first departmental store in tainan. Well maintained but don't expect the usual shopping. Up the 5th floor has a good view of the low rise city. A landmark to say you have been to Tainan.
  • Historic Japanese style building - there is a Torii on the rooftop which really worth a visit! Revamped and opened a few years ago. Find quite many Tainan specialties there!
