Kusukusu Jinja

Kusukusu Tribe is an ancient settlement that once served as the political and religious center of the Mudan area during the Japanese Colonial Era.

The Japanese government built an array of public schools, jinjas and bomb shelters in this area. Yet, many constructions were worn down by the passage of time.

Luckily, the Kusukusu Jinja well protected and renovated; it sits on the hill and welcomes tourists from far and near.

Thanks to its relatively high elevation and little light pollution, the Jinja also attracts numerous avid photographers who want to capture the beauty of the Milky Way.

Farm And Fun

Without many people’s dedication and passion, Farm And Fun would be nothing but a land lying in fallow. There are lush green pastures, tent areas, picnic areas and also a local bazaar.

This place is particularly fascinating at night, with a campfire in the center. If you’re looking for a place to relax and spend quality time, Farm And Fun won’t let you down.
