First built in 1919,the old railway station was shut down in 1978 and is now a post of Giant Bicycles. It is the only remaining station that combines the Japanese and Western architectural styles along the Hualien-Taitung Railroad. Its slanting roof with Mansard design was commonplace for public buildings in France in the 19th-century. Characteristics frequently seen during the Japanese Colonial Period were blended into the design for this station. There is a small semi-circle window on the wall for lighting and ventilation,and the uniqueness often attract onlookers to stop and admire.
