Japanese Style Hotels in Taipei: Review

Sign up to find out some of the best places to eat, drink and travel in Taipei for 2017.


The Japanese style of design is an elegant and beautiful one, not like anything else. The Japanese have their own way of doing things, their own way of creating, assigning and arranging.

Luckily, if this is your sort of thing, you don’t have to go to Japan to experience it.
