Amis Folk Center
The center was established in November 1995. The main building of family and festival houses are based on the hand drawings of Guangfu Township in Hualien County from 1943 by the Japanese ethnologist, Chichiiwa Taro. The buidings here are an imitation of the Shaman's house in Taibalang community in Hualien County. Come and visit and observe the unique lifestyle of the Amis.

In addition to the construction features, there is also a tribal folk center exhibition, crafts, specialty products for sale, food services, and traditional dance performances. "
