Chenggong Market, located very close to the hotel I was staying at in Taipei, was a local market. There were no stores selling souvenirs, and all the stores sold things that the locals would come to buy. Some stores sold clothes, some sold accessories, and of course some sold food. The place was crowded with many locals who came to buy things.
No matter where you go, it's always fun to wander around and look at what's for sale in the local markets. However, looking at the clothing stores here in Taiwan was not so interesting. Part of it is because I'm not really interested in clothes, but the clothes of Taiwanese people have been completely westernized and there is nothing different from Japan. The clothes on sale also looked the same as in Japan.
In contrast, it is interesting to see the food sold in Taiwan. I can find things that I don't see often in Japan but are sold here. As I wandered around the market, I came to a store selling nuts. There were bags of nuts lined up on the table. I looked around to see if there were any rare ones that I couldn't find in Japan. Unfortunately, all the nuts sold in this store were things that could be sold in Japan.
