All is well that ends well.

After finished breakfast, I took a walk toward Love river.

Kaohsiung 2015 : Breakfast at Xin Long Ju (興隆居)
Double breakfast ! The second day of my trip to Kaohsiung started from the buffet in the hotel. There's bar-like restaurant on the second floor and buffet style breakfast is served in the morning. ...
I intended to go to Yanchengpu station (塩埕埔) on foot and get on the train to Sizihwan station, and then walk to the ferry terminal.

Love river (愛河)

Love river, City council station, Kaohsiung, Taiwan Kaohsiung 2015

朝ごはんを食べたあとはこのまま愛河まで散歩。工業都市なのであまり空気は良くないです。高雄。

The air isn’t good because Kaohsiung is industrial city. Lots of factories are there. And lots of cars are crossing the river. So, it might be better to see night views.

なので、夜景のほうが良いかもしれない・・・。

By the way, I was really surprised that they translate Taiwanese name literally. Love river…:)

Kaohsiung museum of history (高雄市立歴史博物館)
This architecture was built in 1938 under Japanese rule. At first it was built as city council center. I had wanted to see this architecture. Japan already don’t have such a historical architecture. Though I wanted to see its inside, too. But the exhibits seems to be difficult for me.  I didn’t examine in advance. So, I didn’t know whether the exhibits have description in Japanese or not.

And, I had no time because I wanted to go to the island that day.

この建物見たかった!日本統治時代に市役所として建設された建物。

By the way, I said at first.
I planed to get to Yanchengpu station.

But somehow I took a wrong way and got to this park.
Pier-2 Art center (駁二藝術特区)

私最初に言いました。このまま駅まで行くと。。。なのに、ココハドコ?

Truthfully speaking, This was in my plan. If I had much time left, I intended to go there. So…I dropped in at the park. (Just the park)

They were fighting.

行ってみたかったところなので良いんですけどね。道を間違えて駁二藝術特区にたどり着きました。

Huge suitcase.

ブランコ。乗っちゃいけませんて書いてある(`・ω・´)

Before this park was completed, there used to be a station.
So, abandoned lines remain there.

もともとこのあたりには駅があり、線路が通っていました。

Well, I tried to go to Yanchengpu station again.

But… I couldn’t find the station…
Finally, I met such a rough parade !

さて、もう一度駅に向かおうとしますが、見つかりません。しまいには、わけのわからないパレードに遭遇する始末(´;ω;`)

At last, somehow I went past Yanchengpu station, Sizihwan station, and got to the ferry terminal directly 🙁

塩埕埔駅も西子湾駅もすっ飛ばして、なぜかフェリー乗り場にたどり着きました。まあ、目的地についたからいっか(ノ∀`)
