[ 台北 ] Taiwan Storyland

 Here, in the heart of Taipei City, is a place where you can travel through time to see the typical street scenes, buildings, food, and ways of living of Taiwanese people living in the post-Japanese occupation era (1940s~50s). In this underground world, people come to…

experience or to re-live your early memories of the old days and remind you of the things that have long gone.


Cigarette boxes for sale in the little conveninetn

Streets of Taiwan after the Japanese occupation period.


Advertisement flyers, propaganda, warnings of infectious diseases and typhoon alerts used to just get pasted on the walls of buildings.

Advertisements for new suits, job recruitments, insurance, piano teacher, barber shop/hairdresser


There are also political propaganda about CKS/KMT leading the people in Taiwan to attack China to get back what he lost to the communists. But of course, that didn’t happen in the end.


Political agenda on the president.


The blue sign on the post says do no hide communist spies.


Shop for shredded ice desert (it was empty when we first passed by it but it became really crowded later on).


Classroom of typical elementary school.


Back in the school days! I remember we never had 2 girls or guys sittng together at a shared table. It’s always one guy with one girl and we always draw a line in betwen to mark our borders! :p


Teachings of Chinese philosophy: Propriety, Righetousness, Integrity and Honor (禮義廉恥) that is always hung in the classrooms to remind students.

The little cakes made out of flour and egg. It’s still popular nowadays.


Salty or Sweet tofu with all kinds of goodies that you can add on it.


We got 100 NTD worth of coupons to spend in shops or stalls/restaurants in the Storyland.


Prices of movie tickets in the good old days. The price for a movie ticket is that price times 26.


Japanese style of houses left from the Jap. occupation period and the things you see on the streets back in the old days.


The store nearby was selling some Taiwan omiyage (souvenir). This includes the super hot “Malasan” aboriginal rice wine that was made popular by the Tw film “Cape No.7”.


Nightmarket-like game. Basically you pick one of the strings from that bundle and whatever was attached at the end of that string is yours.


Wouldn’t you like to be sitting on this dentist chair? haha


Dentist office.


Bank/credit union like place.


The restaurant where we ordered one bowl of rice to share… haha.
We just wanted to see what “阿母飯” was and it turned out to be just a plain bowl of rice with some sweet soy-sauce like thing (豬油) on it.


I get to scoope fish with paper “net”. haha.I love it!


I got 2 fishy. But I coudn’t keep it ’cause apparently you need to have scooped a lot of fishy for you to bring them home. I thought I had a “MY 卡達天王~~” moment when my friend said trade it in for some candy. haha. That was hilarious.


The little convenient store that sells candy, toy, and goodies that you could find in the small corner stores/convenient stores in the old days.


Instead of blowing glass, you can blow syrup candy. When it has been removed from the heat for some time, it’ll turn from “gluey” to  hard and crispy.


We looked like we were waiting in a hotspring hotel… haha.


We got this poor clinic bottle dude to take a photo of us outside of the “Banana Kingdom” park. haha.
