時間回到過年期間,情人節那天。其實我們四個女人也並不是只有整天喝酒。那天天氣真的很不錯,若不出去曬曬太陽,實在很對不起這種藍天。不過四個都在台中混過好幾年的人,要找個新鮮的地點實在很難。原本把近期熱門景點「宮原眼科」包含在行程裡,不料好像只有我一個沒去過(真是台北俗)。後來想到離家不遠處最近開放了一個新的地方,據說很適合拍照。我想連我自己都沒去過,應該對大家也一樣新鮮吧。唯一怕的就是過年期間人會太多。一去發現,台中景點還真是佔了坪數夠大的優勢,人很多但也還不算太壅擠。這棟歷史建築也成了我們當天的亂晃行程之一了。

臺中刑務所演武場,據維基百科,是台中市唯一僅存的日治時代武道館建築物。它建於1937年,經歷過火災及後續修復。今天大家能夠看到這棟具有歷史性的建築,還真的是一種福氣。無論是來拍拍照,或是來閒晃,其實都是很不錯的。

Turning back time to the Chinese New Year's break, on the day of Valentine's Day... 

The four of us did not just sit around drinking beer all day. Seeing the glorious weather, it was such a waste to not go out and enjoy the sun. But Taichung was a city that was familiar to all four of us, having lived many years in this city. It was difficult to find a new and interesting place to suit all of our needs. I did try and fit in the trendy "Miyahara" ice cream parlor into our itinerary, but it turned out I was the only one that had not been! In the end, I remembered that there was a new site near my parents', and it would be the perfect place to hang out for a while. The only thing I was worried about, was the fact that the holiday crowd might ruin our fun. Fortunately, Taichung's advantage of having so much space proved that I had nothing to worry about.

These buildings were built in 1937, during the Japanese colonial period. It originally served as a Training Hall for Penitentiary Guards. After having gone through a destructive fire and reconstruction, we finally got to see what see today. We are very fortunate to have this historical building still standing and serving as a cultural hub. It's a great place for photo shoot (casual or whatever), or even just to wander around.
