Ishioka Lives!

I was looking at bike routes today and as my eyes swept across Shigang town and there was a RR station -- in Japanese! Ishioka is Shigang ("rock ridge") in Japanese. Interestingly, the railway line, an old spur line that ran from Houli Station out to Dongshi during the Japanese period, has been turned into a bike trail (green line) and the rails are long gone. Cool that Google still preserves the old meaning and the old station location. None of the other stations on the line are still marked on Google.
Don't miss the comments below! And check out my blog and its sidebars for events, links to previous posts and picture posts, and scores of links to other Taiwan blogs and forums! Delenda est, baby.

There are a lot of errors in Google maps, regarding Taiwan. Unfortunately there is no way to even report the more severe mistakes - like the location of Kiaoshung. You can only report minor problems like the location of shops and the like.
