When talking about Tainan Train Station (臺南車站) it must be mentioned that when Crown Prince Hirohito visited Taiwan it was still a wooden station. Elementary school students lined up on the platform to welcome the Crown Prince. The station was rebuilt in 1936, and remains unchanged today. The Station also has a rather mysterious second story, which house the now-disused railway restaurant and hotel. Some clues of their existence are still visible when looking up from the station hall. After the restaurant closed in 1986, apart from the occasional tour, almost nobody ventured up there. All of the furnishings upstairs are preserved almost as they were in that year; the railway hotel reception counter remains as elegant as ever, and the decorations in the restaurant are also preserved in their original state. After refurbishment, the second floor will re-open, giving visitors to Tainan a glimpse of the station's past.
