Wanted to visit this place since the last time I visited Taiwan, but I was sick and didn't have time and end up not coming. This time as I was already shopping in Ximending, I thought it'd come visit. It's just a few minutes walk from Ximen Station. It's a cosmetic/medical store + museum. I didn't take a picture of the outside, so I just screen captioned it on google map~
This museum is free to visit. Well, I am sure it would be hard to not spend any money there, so they don't care if it's free entry. The reason is the first, 2nd and 3rd floor is a real cosmetic/medical store selling Japanese stuff. I told myself that I won't buy any, but my friend and I buying loads of paper mask, toners and other random things.
The little museum is located on the 4th floor. It's not big, but it's a cool place for photos with display on old Japanese street.
