Xitou Monster Village Reviews
有一小塊地板有動物（妖怪?）的腳印，很用心。格格不入的建物是主題飯店外觀和招牌。食物美味度再加強一點會更好，畢竟收費非平價。 more »There is a small floor with a piece of objects (monster?) print, very careful. The incognito buildings are the exterior of the main store and the signboard. It would be better to have a little stronger food, and it would be even more non-flat.
為了咬人貓麵包去，結果賣完了，殘念! 建築物雖然是各式各樣的商店，但走在路上有身在卡通的情境，每個建築各有特色，和妖怪的合照，非常有趣，晚上表演很震撼好看。 more »For the bite of the bag to go, the fruit is finished, read! The building is a variety of shops, but walking on the road is in the cartoon situation, each building has its own characteristics, and the monster photo, very interesting, the evening performance is very impressive and beautiful.
As a day visit traveller. Cute little outdoor Plaza of shops in forest theme. In the complex there's a hotel as well as themed lodges in the forest. The food stalls consist of some serving traditional Taiwanese street food as well as shops with toys and souvenirs. However all in all, apart from the forest lodges and the theme of the place, there isn't much depth in terms of food or activities.
An interesting place. You will like it if you are into japanese mosters. There is enough thing for you to spend a day but not more. The food looks interesting but do not expect to find anything that taste good.
