Introduce

The works of author Yang Kui featured heavily in textbooks during the Japanese Colonial Period. He was a revered literary author from Xinhua District (新化) and a source of pride for Xinhua residents. The Memorial Museum of Yang Kui Literature (楊逵紀念館) is located next to the Xinhua District Council House (新化街役場). When you enter, examine the table and chair used by Professor Yang Kui; on the wooden desk is an unusually sunken area, reportedly caused by his habit of propping his elbow on the desk to think while writing, wearing it down bit by bit every day. People can't help but admire Yang Kui's creative literary spirit. In the two-story memorial museum, as well as preserving some of the most used objects and articles from his life, the second-floor houses much of his literary work for tourists to enjoy. It is recommended to book in advance when visiting, and ask for a guide to explain Yang Kui's life and works, as touring the museum in this way will add more depth to the experience. Also remember to visit the neighboring Ou Wei Film Museum (歐威電影館) and Xinhua District Council House next to The Memorial Museum of Yang Kui Literature.
