  • 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.

  • 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.
