Narrow, covered Jishan St often leaves lasting impressions. It’s really just one long covered lane, but spending a few hours here browsing the snack and craft shops is a lot of fun. Jiufen’s famous stair-street, Shuqi St, which features an old theatre and teahouses used as sets in the movie City of Sadness, intersects a few hundred meters down.
One of the most popular activities on the street is snacking. Some distinctive snacks to look for include yùyuán (芋圓; taro balls), yúwán (魚丸; fish balls), cǎozǐ gāo (草仔糕; herbal cakes) and hēitáng gāo (黑糖糕; molasses cake).
Jishan St begins just to the right of the 7-Eleven on the main road.
