  • It is a well-known emperor, built by the well-established Hyun-So-tung. This is located in Zhongshan, the city of Taibei, and also the north of the city (as printed on it) or the North Wuyu, the Qing Dynasty official's north of the imperial palace (The North Wuyu). There are also a few sub-houses, located in the north of the city of Tongtou Zhongyu Mountain and the city of Xinbei, the three-day Baiji Mountain, "travel ingesting the sky (three) three." Among them, the earliest construction was completed by the North Investment Division, followed by the three-way practice. The city of Kitai is the latest to be completed in the third day of the day

  • It is a famous tourist spot on the guide map. It was fun to have an assistant who taught me how to visit the shrine. I think there were nearly 20 fortune-telling shops in the underground shopping area. If you are a fortune teller popular with Japanese people, there are quite a few things that are filled with reservations on the day, so it is better to make a reservation first and have them tell you on another day. If it is another unpopular shop, the tout is amazing.
