(Taiwan News) — The Shoyoen Japanese Garden (逍遙園) in Kaohsiung will once again welcome visitors starting Sunday (Nov. 1) following the completion of its three-year renovation.

Built in 1940 during the Japanese colonial era (1895-1945), the garden served as a villa for Otani Kozui, the 22nd patriarch of the Jodo Shinshu branch of Japanese Buddhism, after he decided to settle down in Taiwan. It was also used as a training base for Taiwan's agricultural development and education by the religionist, who described the island nation as a "jewel" of the Japanese empire, reported Liberty Times.

The Shoyoen Japanese Garden survived the Pacific War in 1945 and was taken on by the Taiwanese government. It was recognized as a cultural heritage site in 2010 by the Kaohsiung Cultural Affairs Bureau and underwent a major renovation in 2017 as part of the city's historical restoration project.

Kaohsiung City Government said a reopening ceremony will be held at 10 a.m. on Sunday and that Mayor Chen Chi-mai (陳其邁) is expected to give out 1,000 face masks designed by independent artists. It added that Culture Minister Lee Yung-te (李永得) will also be at the event, reported CNA.

蔡英文參訪高市「逍遙園」 讚別具歷史意義

高雄市歷史建築「逍遙園」11月1日才修復開園,到訪遊客已破萬人,蔡英文總統今到高雄參加在衛武營舉辦的總統府音樂會,也到逍遙園一窺堂奧,指逍遙園能在高雄改制滿百年之際重新開園,別具歷史意義。

蔡總統今由市長陳其邁、副市長史哲及立法委員李昆澤、趙天麟等人陪同參訪逍遙園,得知這處歷史建築歷時十多年修復,台日匠師技術交流、公民亦參與工地見學,讚許高雄市政府很用心。

高雄今年適逢改制百年,副市長史哲率團隊規畫系列活動並開發許多文創商品,蔡總統戴上「高雄一百」口罩,也參訪逍遙園高雄一百專賣店,看到主覺LOGO設計的項鍊、傳達「走下去」意涵的襪子、結合在地特產的烏魚子巧克力,覺得創意十足;她鼓勵高雄市民一起撫今追昔,展望未來,攜手共創下一個更好的一百年。

高市文化局表示,逍遙園是日本真宗西本願寺第22代法主大谷光瑞在台灣的別邸,昭和15年(1940)啟用;戰後,周邊土地成為802總醫院軍官與眷屬棲身的家,取名「行仁新村」,2003年起民間發起逍遙園保存,市府2010年登錄逍遙園為歷史建築,歷時十年調查研究、修復設計、斥資逾億元修復完工。

目前逍遙園展示實體中,有「逍遙園開園紀念瓷盤」、「大谷家徽」、1935年出版「台湾島の現在」,還有市松紋壁面及網代天井等特殊的建築工法,日來成為高雄新興文化勝景。
