Hayashi Department Store

The Hayashi Department Store opened in 1932, is currently the oldest department store in Taiwan and it is known to the Tainan people as “The-Five-Stories-House.” The Hayashi Department Store still preserves the elements of its history during the Japanese Colonial Era as exhibitions, such as the original floor tiles on certain levels, or the ruins of the rooftop Shinto Shrine. What is special about this department store is the unique cultural-themed merchandise that it's offered here. From local designer brands to Tainan-themed records, this is a place where visitors can find items which depict the culture of this country and which will serve as a reminder of this memorable trip.
