Snapshots of Jiufen

06 March 2015

About an hour's bus ride outside of Taipei, Taiwan is the mountain town of Jiufen. This was a town I had never heard of until I started doing research for my trip to Asia. The reason I decided to go here? It was the model for the city in Miyazaki's Spirited Away!

It was a small town and quite walkable. It offered great views of the ocean but other than the main, touristy streets the city was a little rundown.
