The Monument, commemorating the leader of the Tapani Anti-Japanese Uprising(噍吧哖抗日事件) Yu Qing-fang(余清芳), is atop Mt. Hutou in Yujing District. When the uprising occurred in 1915, Mt. Hutou was an anti-Japanese base and a place where the two sides fought fiercely. A large number of people were caught up in the incident and massacred during its suppression. As memories of this tragic and horrifying historic event fade over time, the Monument on Mt. Houtou continues to commemorate the brave deeds of the resistance fighters.
Mt. Hutou is also a popular spot for enjoying the scenery when visiting Yujing. Facing Mt. Douliuzai which is known for producing mangos, it provides a bird’s-eye view of central Yujing by day and the dazzling lights of this mountain town by night. There are a number of cafes in the area around the Monument, each with its own scenic views and dishes, and they are good places for a romantic date or to view the scenery while enjoying a coffee or meal.
