Hualien’s Pine Garden is aptly named- this charming little building is surrounded by towering pines, each over a hundred years old. The building sits in a beautiful spot, high on a hill overlooking the Pacific. In nice weather, you can take a quiet stroll around the grounds and maybe pop inside for a look at some art. But cute though it is today, the Pine Garden was never meant as a place for relaxation, and you can see that soon enough. There’s been no effort to mask what this place was really for or the dark legend that’s gathered around it. Here today to tell us this building’s story is the garden’s Luo Man-ling.
