  • Reasons for being listed as a cultural heritage site:Zuoying Naval Dependent Villages are an area with the largest concentration of single-discipline (Navy) military dependent villages in Taiwan. It started with a military port construction during the Japanese Occupation and was further expanded during the Nationalist Government’s rule in Taiwan. It is a result of the changing historic environment. Because of its unique cultural value and historical significance, its Mingde Village, Jianye Village, Hecyun Village, and the neighboring facilities to its south side, as well as its better preserved parts, are officially recognized as a cultural landscape.
    The preservation and management principles of this cultural landscape reserve flexibility for future revitalization and development.

  • .History

    The Imperial Japanese Navy began to build Zuoying Military Harbor project in 1904. The project included the command office, residential area, factory, logistics, marine camp, and hospital. The dormitory designated for both married and single naval officers were also built around the Harbor, and it was the very beginning of the Zuoying Naval Dependent Villages.

    After WWII, a large amount of military personnel and their dependents from all over mainland China came to Taiwan with the Navy, and with the Government’s arrangement they settled down around the Zuoying Military District; some of them lived in the dormitories deserted by the Japanese, others in the dormitories later built by the Navy or the National Women’s League. In all, more than 20 of these dormitories were built; they grew into a conglomeration and formed a unique landscape in Zuoying. The villages in the entire District comprise, in general: (1) deserted Japanese officers’ dormitories; (2) villages later built by the Navy; and (3) villages later built by the National Women’s League. Some other unofficial villages were built for refugees and American military advisors.
