Take the perfect IG shots here. Adorable memorabilia available for sale. You can also make a donation to aid the 90+ year old grandpa’s painting hobby in beautifying the place and even request for a selfie.

Its in Taichung. Look at the address, or google. It is accessible by bus, but the easiest way to go there is by taxi. Taxis in Taiwan is quite cheap.
