Hayashi Department Store, West Central District

4.1
#1 of 28 in Shopping in Tainan
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. Our Tainan day trip app makes visiting Hayashi Department Store and other Tainan attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Taiwan Zheng Chenggong related ruins. This is a collection of retro shops where the clerk of a pretty uniform greeted me. I wanted to see the clothes, but also the rooftop shrine, which was attacked by the U.S. Army of the Greater East Asia War (* World War II) era (Bikoku), and a retro elevator. I was wondering what to do with a lot of variations of soap on 2F, but it was fun just to enjoy the scent.

  • Lin Bai-yin is the "hundred-dollar" bulk, but its "hundreds" is not a bit of a tiger, one is the local characteristics of food companionship, two to four are Taiwan and local special hand products, if you do not know where to go to go to go to go to go to go to the Literary And Lin Bai is a good one.

  • This renovated department store is a new and worth spot for visitors to Tainan. There are many great choices of souvenirs on different floors. Don't forget to go to the rooftop. Although it's not the tallest building in Tainan anymore, you can still how it commanded the corner when it was first built. Besides, there're two more bonus points to see on the rooftop: a Japanese shrine, and several bases of anti-aircraft guns from the last century.
  • Very historical and unique mall to visit. Taking the old elevator is a must. The small temple at roof top is very nice. Stores inside carries unique handmade items.
