“As soon as the decorated lanterns were hung, a constant flow of brightly attired highly placed officials, influential personalities, and well-connected geishas from Tai­nan’s Shin­ma­chi pleasure quarters arrived by rickshaw at the entrance. Although Hu­kuisu was classified as a ryo­tei-style Japanese restaurant, in reality it played the role of a major underground decision-making center in Tai­nan during the ­Showa Era and as such was intimately connected with the city’s modern-day historical development.” —Tai­nan City Cultural Affairs Bureau
