The Jimmy Square幾米廣場

Introduction

Have you ever imagined how the pictures in picture books would look if they became real? The Jimmy Square situated around the Yilan Station has finally fulfilled the dreams of Jimmy’s fans.

The Jimmy Square幾米廣場
The Jimmy Square used to be an old railway staff dormitory; it was later transformed into the transit center of long-haul buses. As Yilan happens to be the hometown of the famous illustrator, with the theme of “in memory of the transient scenery”, he created the first square in Taiwan featuring his own illustrations, in Yilan. The square still maintains the original historic buildings and old trees.

Here, you will see the male and female main characters from Turn Left, Turn Right (A Chance of Sunshine) departing hastily in opposite directions. Or you can see the little boy and girl from The Starry Starry Night waiting together for the bus that will never come. Or you can see the suitcase that holds the traveler’s memories from Sound of Colors. All the pieces of the installation art displayed at the Jimmy Square create limitless room for imagination and touch people’s hearts.

The Jimmy Square幾米廣場
The Happy Station that takes only five minutes to arrive at, no longer leaves the impression of hastiness. Visitors who travel here can now slow down and stop for a while to appreciate the beautiful scenery in the surroundings and imprint Yilan, the place that makes you smile, in their mind.

    A good photo taking place with the famous jimi comic characters. Easy to find, just locate next to the train station and a car park nearby.

    Small outdoor area

    The place is made popular by the artist and the movie 向左走向右走. Great areas for photo-taking but not friendly for rainy days as all exhibits are outdoor. Can be easily covered in 10minutes or lesser too.

    Symbol of Yilan

    3 2019-06

    It is doubtful if it is really a tourist attraction. But anyway all visitors to Yilan visit this place, which represents a world of Jimi. a famous story teller for children. It is just few minutes’ walk from TRA station. So, you can go first on arrival in Yilan.

    This is a great place for family with kid(s). Lot's of places for take photos and let kid explore. Very interesting arts all around. Of course, the best is free. Ensure you take photo with the train.
