The Keelung city government has opened the Keelung Fort Commander’s Official Residence (要塞司令官邸) to the public on weekends to allow more people to appreciate the beauty of the old Japanese house.
The Keelung Fort Commander’s Official Residence built in 1931 was originally the residence of a company’s president.
The building has evolved over the years to become a major historical building.
The restored project was officially unveiled to the public last year, but it was only open to groups of 10 to 30 people by appointment due to the pandemic.
The building has opened to the public free of charge on weekends since April 17 so that everyone can take Instaworthy photos in the old Japanese mansion.
What’s more? The Fort Commander’s Official Residence will be lit at 6:00 p.m. every evening, lighting up Keelung’s night sky.
