Yilan

Spontaneous visit to Jiaoxi in Yilan County. This area is well known for its Hot Springs, and this weekend there were a lot of people there.

We had dinner at a luxurious place called the Formosa Pearl. It was a restaurant inside a japanese-style garden, and also had a little wood craft museum with delicate wood carved sculptures (which, unfortunately, were not allowed to be photographed).

The food was also japanese, 10 courses with mostly variations of seafood dishes like Sashimi, Seafood hotpot, and also really tasty Sake. Unfortunately, they told us also that it is not allowed to take pictures inside the restaurant or of the food, so here are some shots from the exterior garden area. It was already dark.

Entrance. Looks oldfashioned, but was actually an automatic sliding door.
