Very cute little train station. Especially enjoyed the train statue spouting smoke periodically with recording of the origin of the train station.

This railway station is nothing great. It is just a small gauge railway , nothing more. The railway station is surrounded by shops so food can be had here. you could take a return train ride if you have time to kill.

Jiji is quiet, beautiful area in central Taiwan. We did some biking and motorscootering through the countryside. The is clean and smells of jasmine hang in the air. We took a trip on the train up to Checheng. Some good Japanese architecture and very relaxing.

A peaceful area with an old locomotive and an armour tank to take photo with. Hope onto the train for a ride to the next few stations for an inexpensive amount. A few shopping areas around too, and good food as well.

A nice ride through cute villages and beautiful scenery - We started at Ershuei and first looked at some old steam trains, then we got off at Zhuoshui station (I advise NOT to fo this), next was Jiji station which was good and the terminal station Checheng has a great historic train museum.

The train ride was about 15min from Jiji to Che Chen station but it was a scenic and pleasant ride, with different decoration theme in each cabin (we ride in the animal Safari cabin). Both towns offered interesting shops to visit and in CheChen there were even DIY Carpentery experience workshop for kids. Definitely worth the visit.

Visited this place as part of our group tour. There was no train arrival or departure when we reached this place. The place was pretty empty. An old locomotive and a tanker were on display near the station. Along the tracks, nice scenery for you to take photos. Outside and adjacent to it, there are many stalls selling local products....

Perhaps it was due to the fact we went on Monday there was no major crowd. You can get a one day pass at the start of the Jiji line in Ershui which allows you to get on/off at any of the 6 stops. There are 13 trains daily either way. We stopped at: -Jiji for some Japanese buildings and... More

The town itself is very small with many shops selling banana products : banana ice cream, banana egg rolls and fried banana (even banana skin!) haha.. according to our driver, jiji is famous for the bananas... The railway station is... More

The Jiji small railway line is one of four small branch lines in Taiwan, now mostly operating as tourist attractions, Jiji is about halfway up this line. The line has been closed till mid-2011 due to typhoon damage but is now running again. The guidebooks will say the train originates at Ershui but it seems you can actually catch them... More
