溪頭妖怪村 – Xī Tóu Yāo Guài Cūn (Xi Tou Monster Village)

Recommended places of interest:

Are they cute? They are Mascots of Xi Tou Monster Village

 

溪頭妖怪村 – Xi Tou Yao Guai Chun (Xi You Monster Village) is a very unique attraction in Nan Tou with an interesting concept. It does sound like a scary, haunted theme park, but it’s not! This Japanese style village is so beautifully designed that you will feel like you have stepped into another world! Cute monster statues and mascots can be found all over the village. Restaurants and shops here are all named after various Japanese monsters. I guarantee you will not stop taking photos. Even their post box is a monster!!!

 

This place is very suitable for families with children, as there are also performances during scheduled times, game booths, arcade games, UFO catching machines and more! Although the village area is small enough to walk through in under an hour, it’s recommended to allocate about 1-2 hours so that you can slowly enjoy the experience and appreciate the details put into the decor.

 

Be prepared and come to the Monster Village in Taiwan!
