The Pingtung County Government, which organized the event, has decorated Sichongxi Hot Springs Park with red maple leaves and maple leaf-shaped lights, CNA reported on Saturday. Pingtung County Commissioner Pan Men-an (潘孟安) said that the park boasts a Japanese atmosphere, with popular traditional Japanese ballads being played on the PA system.
The commissioner added that the park is situated in a mountainous area, while Syuhai Hot Springs Area in Manzhou Township on the other side of County Route 199 is located near the sea. He recommended that visitors to Sichongxi, which is known for its carbonated water, also visit Syuhai to enjoy hot springs in two different geological settings, the news agency reported.
