Outline

We aim to share the authentic life of Tainan to Japanese, emphasizing the character of locals. Tainan, built 400 years ago, has embedded the history and culture into daily life. The name is based on one of the common products you can see everywhere in Tainan, the red stool. Stools are plain but robust resembling the plain character of locals. People from Tainan are as straightforward and warm as people from Kansai area of Japan. Thus the Red Stool Travel Club of Tainan chose Osaka as its base. We organize related activities such as forums, exhibition every year in Osaka.

Evaluation

In Tainan, the red plastic chair is a symbol that can be seen everywhere. It is as if to invite people to "come and sit" and make friends: it is used as a medium to connect two-way exchanges between Tainan and Japan. Through three consecutive years of various activities, exhibitions, forums, etc. we hope that Japanese friends will continue to visit Tainan for a long-term friendship based on their deep understanding about Tainan.
