Jiufen Travel Guide
Jiufen, historically spelled Chiufen and alternately spelled Jioufen, is a small town in Northern Taiwan. It’s a must visit for any Studio Ghibli fans who will find many of its streets familiar as it served as the inspiration for the movie Spirited Away. Jiufen is now a popular escape from the capital for those eager to relive scenes from the past. It has provided the setting for several period movies, including Hou Hsiao-hsien’s A City of Sadness, which won the Golden Lion award at the 1989 Venice Film Festival.
The town of Jiufen is built into the side of the hills slightly inland from the Pacific Ocean coastline. The main area of interest to visitors are the town’s historic commercial district which is covered by two pedestrian streets: Jishan Street, Qingbian road which runs along the ridge line and Shuqi Street, actually steep steps which run up and down the slope of the hill. The area is small enough to cover on foot.
There are four relatively well-renown streets in Jiufen among which includes Jishan Street, otherwise known as Dark Street. Rain or shine the street never sees the sun’s rays of light and it is usually packed with people, particularly on weekends and holidays. The other three streets also frequented by visitors are known as Cingbian Road, Ciche Road and Jianci Road. It is recommended that tourists slow down, for on these ancient lanes and alleys, perhaps when least expected, a picture perfect moment shall be availed of the careful eye.
As a mountain city developed along with the gold rush, Jiufen retains details of miners’ lives in the past. Jiufen is also a hugely popular day trip, especially in the evening, Jiufen is known for its street food. There are numerous things to eat in Jiufen. Fishball soup, yuyuan (taro balls), dumplings served hot or cold with sweet bean, and mochi are all widely available. The sheer number of restaurants can be a little overwhelming though. Grandma Lai’s Yuyuan at No.143, Jishan Street, is the most famous one for its taro balls. Must buy – Locally produced Ginger Tea and Plum Wine.
