    No.30, Ln. 6, Sec. 1, Zhongzheng Rd., Tamsui Dist., New Taipei City 251, Taiwan (R.O.C.)

The Japanese-style dwelling in Tamsui is not a legacy from the days when the Japanese ruled Taiwan. Instead, the wooden residence from Fukui Prefecture, Japan, was dismantled and then rebuilt in Taiwan after Japan's Kobe Earthquake and Taiwan's 921 Earthquake. Demonstrating a friendly citizen diplomacy with Taiwan, Japan wanted to transfer the house owner's cherishing and dedication to the house to Taiwan. After 5 years, with the help of 1,300 laborers working with their bare hands, the house carrying an interesting story like that of Puli's Paper Dome was rebuilt in Tamsui’s Heping Park. The memorial house has been kept intact and open to the public for free, but visitors may find nothing special in it except for some Japanese home furnishings. Despite of that, it won't take you much time to drop by and take some photos. You can also visit the nearby Hobe Fort and the Cloud Gate Theater, the latter completed just in 2015.
