Trip Moments

Hualien Lintianshan Forestry Culture Park, formerly the fourth largest forest farm in Taiwan, once known as the Hometown of Taiwan's Elm, regardless of its size or importance, is the most complete and distinctive logging base left by Taiwan. As early as the beginning of the Japanese occupation, the Japanese began to reclaim in the Lintianshan area. Until the policy of the total ban on logging of natural forests in Taiwan in the 1980s, the logging operation of Lintianshan was officially stopped. For more than a decade, the workstations in the forest area have been successively cut, and the past bustling scenes of Lin Tianshan have gradually disappeared, becoming a quiet and deserted hill city. Now entering the Lintian Mountain Forest Farm, the coffin houses and the old railways left on the hillside are all traces of the past years. This place is called "Morissaka" during the Japanese occupation. It still retains abandoned Japanese houses, auditoriums and projectors with a long history. A variety of wood carvings were exhibited in the exhibition hall that was converted into a Japanese-style building. The Field Museum is a very fine Japanese-style building. It is well preserved and has a reasonable interior layout. It is a good place to learn about Japanese architecture. During the heyday of Lintian Mountain, more than 2,000 people lived here. Kindergartens, elementary schools, hot perm shops, welfare agencies, public canteens, railway stations, etc. have emerged as the times require, and even there is a place for public gatherings - Zhongshan Hall, where free movies are broadcast every week. The bustling scene at that time can be imagined.
