Team 3: The Fusion of Tainan 第3組 2017-05-17 00:00:00
Introduction: catch and hold on to the audience’s attention!
  Do you know the definition of fusion? Ok it’s not the club which has been shut down. Fusion is usually used to describe a cuisine that combined at least 2 styles. Today, we are going to use this word to describe not only cuisine but also the buildings and cultures of Tainan. To well present the fusion of Tainan, me, a solo traveler, will start my journey with you guys!

Body: Important info!
  There are so many old houses and buildings at Shennong Street. Tourists can explore the old -school houses and feel the traditional lifestyle here. At the meantime, they can travel the modern bars and shops here.
  Many old house hosts provide accommodations for tourists who can live in. Imagine that if you wake up in an old -school house, and after finishing your breakfast, then you just open the door, and go to the street, you will find the brand-new shops and foreign bars.
You can go there have some beer. Just relax yourself, and go around the street to find some traditional foods. Or you can go to a temple to feel classical lifestyle (Taiwanese religion - a kind of transitional customs)
  In my opinion, Tainan is some kind of Macau, a place combines old with modern.
  Beer with transitional Tainan foods, foreign bar with historical buildings.
  It's a fusion icon of modern style with transitional customs here. So, I promise you that it will be a very different experience to travel Tainan. Cause you can experience both different lifestyle here.

  The Dove Tail operates in the form of a combination of cafes and carpentry classrooms on the Shennong Street. The dovetail represents a traditional fine woodworking technique. There is an impressive and old Qing Dynasty house that full of retro nostalgic window frames, the feature in the front of Dove Tail has provided elegant living room that, followed by carpentry studio, each class is limited to three people small class teaching, so that each classmate in the classroom can fully communicate with each other and operate the equipment.
  Go through the Shennong Street, this is the good place that you can hang out with your friend. Enjoy the woody, taste tea and coffee incense, appreciate the handmade wood furniture, color glaze and firewood pottery.

  Do you miss the time you sat with your family and shared every happy or sad things which happened in the school? At that moment, your mom would make some noodles with sesame sausage and a wonton soup that always comfort you. This is what we want to bring to.
  小丰川 is a shop delivering the value of family. We not only serve the traditional food, but also the memory of being close to the family. Our goal is to remind every customer the happiness with family.
  To us, memory is simple but tasty. The food in our shop is not expensive or complicated to make you dizzy. But you will still be fed up with the delicious meal and the wonderful memory. We like to suit yourself as your home. Enjoy your time here!

Karen(店員):Good morning! Is there anything I could help you?
Irisa(遊客):Yes! Could you please tell me about the story of this building?
Karen(店員):Let me show you the history of Hayashi Department Store:

  Hayashi Department Store was known to the old Tainan people as "The Five-Stories-House". It was founded by Japanese businessman Hayashi Houichi.
  The Department Store opened on December 5th., 1932, and became the second large department store in Taiwan, as well as the largest department store in southern Taiwan. It started an age of fashion in Tainan.
  What made Hayashi Department Store famous at that time was the elevator in the store. It was one of the first places in southern Taiwan that had a modern elevator.
  Unfortunately, after the WWII, Hayashi Department Store, damaged badly by air raids during the war. The marks and bullet holes left on wall were already repaired during the restoration, but on the top floor you can still see the evidence of that attack.

Conclusion: Help the audience remember your important points!
  Only until 1998 Hayashi Department Store was classified as a city monuments, and after the restoration was completed in 2013, Tainan City Government launched a bid for the management right, Focus won the bid.
  After 81 years, Hayashi Department Store reopened as Tainan Cultural Creative Department Store. If you like modern department store, Shinkong Mitsukoshi and Focus are nearby, but if you want to experience charm of old Tainan, Hayashi Department Store is your best choice!
  Just enjoy yourself in Tainan! See ya!
