We knew that Taiwan culture is deeply inspired by Japan. However little we know that it’s that much of it! However, this Taiwan trip we rediscover how much the Taiwanese are in love Japan’s culture deeply. Apart from their living lifestyle and food, one of them is the recreation of famous scenes in animation.
Many fans of Miyazaki’s My Neighbour Totoro would remember when Satsuki waited at the bus stop for her dad in the rain and Totoro gave her shelter. When both Joe and I was planning to visit the one in Japan. And we discover that Taichung’s very own Totoro Bus Stop! It’s not an actual bus stop, but based on our research it has been sticking around long enough.
Totoro Bus Stop (大里龍貓公車站)
Address: No. 133, Qiao Cheng Road, Dali District, Taichung City, Taiwan
