不再悲情城市【九份】 Taiwan Travel 【Jiufen】





【九份】是臺灣新北市瑞芳區的一個地區,早期因金礦而興盛,礦坑挖掘殆盡後一度沒落。1990年代後,因電影【悲情城市】於九份取景,其獨特的舊式建築、坡地及風情透過此片吸引國內外的注目,也為此地區重新帶來生機,【九份】亦曾被誤傳為【宮崎駿神隱少女】的背景地,吸引許多日本遊客前往。

Feel spirited away in this decommissioned gold mining mountain town, originally built by the Japanese and now a maze of lanes and alleyways with rich history and culture.

Founded during the Qing Dynasty, this small town was a relatively isolated village until the discovery of gold during the Japanese occupation in 1893, quickly developing the town due to a gold rush. Many buildings in the town remain unchanged to this day, reflecting the Japanese influence on both architecture and culture on the island. During World War II, the town housed a Japanese prisoner of war camp where captured Allied Force soldiers (mainly British) were forced to work in the gold mines. After the war, gold mining activities declined, and the town today exists mainly as a tourist destination remembering and celebrating Taiwanese history and culture.
