Located in the midst of the coastal recreation zone in the Yilan Plain, Dancewoods Hotels and Resorts is a unique Japanese garden resort that features beautiful landscapes, art, ecology and recreational elements. The resort is close to the estuary of three of the nearby rivers – Lanyang River, Yilan River and Dongshan River – which is considered the ideal spot to enjoy the Guishan sun, one of Yilan’s top eight attractions. Terraced rice paddies and the Xueshan and Zhongyang mountain ranges also come into view. The unique Japanese garden has beautiful and relaxing scenery and green landscape everywhere. There are also a performance hall, art gallery, restaurants and cafe, Cherry Blossom Tea Room, Yushou Pavilion, exploration park and wedding venues with beautiful landscape and water view. The array of recreation themes and guided tours meet the needs of every visitor.
1. Japanese Style Garden and Plants
The park evokes a serene Japanese style garden with more than 200 kinds plants. The carefully planted trees and the precise placement of various features that enhance the premises create a relaxing and tranquil garden that’s suitable for every season.
2. Japanese Style Performance Hall
This architecture features unique Japanese wood joint technique in the windows and corridor of the building. Cypress wood was imported from Canada and shipped to Japan for carving and final detail touchups, and finally transported to Taiwan. More than 10 Japanese technicians were hired to come to Taiwan to connect all the joints on site by following the traditional wood joint method. From procuring the wood supply to manufacturing and transporting the material, every step met environmental regulations. The building was finally completed a little after a year. In the future, traditional performances, such as Japanese dance, shamisen, and other body and mind courses will be held here periodically. This performance hall is considered Taiwan’s only Japanese performance hall erected among nature.
3. Dancewoods Art Gallery
The three-story art gallery covers an area of 992 square meters. Floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the building offer beautiful changing scenery from the garden like paintings that automatically rotate their scenes as the season changes. In the beginning, the art gallery exhibited arts and paintings from the founder’s collection. In the future, a variety of lectures about humanity and art, concerts, and other exhibitions about lifestyle and aesthetics will be held here from time to time. Dancewoods Hotels and Resorts will also be the core base to nurture the development of new art and culture.
4. Land and Water Wedding Plaza
The Land and Water Wedding Plaza is the only outdoor wedding venue in Taiwan that features beautiful landscape and water view. The one-and-only Moses Bridge in Taiwan spans across the lake. The wisteria pergola and the bald cypress by the lake are romantic spots to hold a wedding, have a party or BBQ. The venue can also be reserved for wedding photo shoots, filming, outdoor receptions, or various speech engagements.
5. Yushou Pavilion
Dancewoods’ mascot foxes Umi and Nami, and the Huimagua Pavilion are available for visitors to offer prayers, make a wish or take pictures.
