Jinguashi Crown Prince ChaletJinguashi Crown Prince Chalet

It is believed that it was built in 1922 and is one of the finest surviving wooden Japanese buildings in Taiwan. It was built by Takana Mining Co. to host the Crown Prince Hirohito(later Emperor Showa) during a planned visit to inspect the mining industry in Jinguashi area. The Crown Prince Chalet is a typical high class Japanese building with Western design features, having the kind of mixed Japanese and western architectural style that was popular at that time.

The north side of the Chalet has a lovely Japanese garden, while the south side has a miniature golf course and an archery field. When you walk into garden and are surrounded by Japanese architecture, you can feel and enjoy the beauty of the landscape.
