Introduction

Anchor
Wuqi Cultural Branch Office that started to operate officially and externally in 2021 is nearby the Wuqi old street and the municipal historic site “Old Wuqi Official Police Station and Dormitory Quarters” located in Wenhua Road shopping area. Established in 1931, Wuqi Cultural Branch Office witnessed the transformation from Japanese domination period to the national government period of the Republic of China; the police agency system and supporting measures for police station; and the rise, decline and redevelopment of Wuqi Harbor Street.

The buildings inside the park include the “Official Police Station and Dormitory Quarter” that went through the 1935 Shinchiku-Taichū earthquake; and the “duplex brick dormitory”, “single-family wooden dormitory” and “single-family brick dormitory” and dugouts established after the earthquake. It is one of the few historic sites that preserve police station and dormitory quarter in Taiwan. 

Apart from historic walking tours, special harbor exhibition and artwork exhibitions, the Park also provides a number of Japanese experiencing activities, such as Kimono wearing, Ema (literally means “picture-horse”) writing, and lucky poem drawing activities. Something to note that that Taiwan’s first B&B is located inside Wuqi Cultural Branch Office, enabling tourists to live in the Japanese historic site and experience living inside it.
