In Japan, with its small land mass and booming population, every piece of property is seen as a business opportunity and space needs to be taken advantage of. Lately, several shopping malls inside of train and subway stations, called eki-naka, have sprouted up. Now, Taiwan is following suit. Known as Taiwan's biggest shopping center, the "Breeze Taipei Station" has a new food court on the second floor, which takes up over 2,800 pings of space. Not only can you find different themed restaurants, but there are also vendors selling desserts, a beef noodle shop, a curry palace and four other stalls selling Taiwanese night market food. In addition, the Breeze Center will be opening up some new stores on the ground and basement floors and changing the second floor around. Next year, there will be a supermarket, coffee shop, bakery, daily necessity store, a bookstore, and a local delicacy store. --By Josie Wu, translated by Ann Lee
