Introduction

Anchor
Taichung Train Station was built in the 6th year of Taishō era (1917). It is an architecture imitating the station style of western Renaissance in Japanese occupation period as well as a product under Meiji Restoration promoted by Japanese Government. The establishment of Taichung Train Station is the symbol for an era and a landmark of a city. Its establishment represents the development of Taichung City and the evolution of railway history in Taiwan. The architecture of Taichung Train Station is very similar to the Government-General of Taiwan during Japanese occupation period. The central roof in the main body of the architecture is decorated with a magnificent clock tower, and it is the most eye-catching symbol. Whitewashed finish encircled in bands matches with the red brick surface still looks grand and imposing today even after so many years.
It was announced a national historic site in 1995. The old station is now suspended for use and is one of the most complete train stations surviving in Taiwan. Visitors can enjoy the landscape of the co-existence of old and new stations here.
