New Year's fireworks in Taipei. 台北での新年のカウントダウン。

We went to Taipei for 6 days.


We attended a New Year's Eve party in a hotel from 10 P.M.


She performed a beautiful music for me.

The party ended about 11:40 P.M.
Then we went to the rooftop observation platform.


The New Year started.


The fireworks started just the same time.


The fireworks started from the highest building in Taipei.





A ferris wheel.


A typical Chinese style hotel.

Next day,we went to the building.

This building is named Taipei 101,
because it has 101 stories above the ground.


We had reserved a restaurant in 86th floor of the building.


We could see very beautiful night view from the restaurant.


Just same as sending  the heart-shaped neon sign of this building,
we send you our hearty message.
