      Cao Shan Xing Guan was originally a hostel built for a visit of the Crown Prince of Japan in the 1920s. In 1949, when Chiang Kai-shek retreated to Taiwan, it became his first Taiwan residence. It was known as the "Caoshan Old Official Residence," and the "Rear Mountains Official Residence." Taipei City's Cultural Affars Bureau decided a few years ago to turn Cao Shan Xing Guan into an art and cultural salon. Open since April 5, it is intended to be a creative space for Taipei-based and visiting artists from overseas, and a venue for international art exchange activities. The buildings and grounds cover 4,275 square meters. The main building is a typical 1920s Japanese-style building; the outer wall is made of brick and has a typical Yangmingshan flavor. The interior has wood decroations from the period. There are five other buildings, each with their own distinctive shapes. Take the 260 or Red 5 buses to the terminus, then take the Small Red 9 bus, or walk towards Hauzhong Car Park for about 15 minutes. --By Josie Wu
