Established in the first year of the Republic of China, this bookstore has survived for over a century and was recently relaunched to continue its mission to younger generations in a high-tech era. Third-generation owner Xu Qin-zhong headed up a team that spent two years renovating the shop, which now features a book collection including books on religion, the “five skills”, spirituality, healthcare and the humanities. From the exterior design to interior decorative greenery, the overall ambiance is peaceful. At the heart of the store is a quietly pneumatic vacuum elevator for convenience. The “five skills” collection includes volumes related to the I Ching (Book of Changes) and seminars on astrology and spiritual subjects are periodically hosted here. A basement multi-functional room is now also open and may be rented for public exhibition and events.
