九份 Jiufen 2

九份 Jiufen

This town inspired the setting of “Spirited Away” (千と千尋の神隠し). It’s near the Taiwanese-Japanese gold mine from the last album, and it’s still bustling because the market is packed with great food, and the beautiful Japanese tea houses are a great tourist draw. We also released flying wish lanterns from the edge of town.  Zhu Ge Liang invented these lanterns almost 1800 years ago to send military signals.  Shifen, near Jiufen, has a quaint traditional market straddling the railroad.
