Some say Taiwanese people embrace some of Japanese culture. Let's have a look. Ximending, as compared to Shibuya.
Ximending is different from the night markets of Taiwan - it feels cleaner, hipper, and safer. The similarities between it and Shibuya are amazing. However, I still recommend the night markets for actual shopping; Ximending is a place to shop for major labels, people-watch, and grab a bite to eat at a trendy or themed restaurant. Speaking of themed restaurants, tomorrow I'll post pictures from my visit to one!
