This beautiful building is located in what is now referred to as Beitou Park. This area was the original resort from the Japanese era. It was built as the Beitou Public Baths in 1913 and shows the fascination of the time with Japanese architects to combine East and West styles. On the exterior it looks like an English country villa; on the interior it is modeled after Shizuokaken Idouyama bath house in Japan.
On a upper floor, this was the public bath. There was a tatami mat chill area adjacent to the bath.
