Nantou County, Taiwan –


Chunyang Village is located in Renai Township, which is about 3 kilometres to the east of Wushe Village. It is situated 1,200 meters above seal level. There is a small creek located on the right bank of Jhuoshui River, which its source comes from the north side of the mountain and cuts off the ridge on the south side, leaving the village stands in front of a greenish hill. During the Japanese colonial period, the hill was once called Hege Fuji Mountain, which is 350 meters above sea level. Moreover, there are hiking trails for mountaineers and tourists.

Chungyang formerly called Gungu because of its winding topography shaped like an animal’s tail. In the early Japanese colonial period, it was called Hege. Chunyang Village was once the tribal village of Sediq Tkdaya. After the Wushe Incident, it was changed into Sakura due to rich in cherry blossom. Later on, it was renamed Chunyang after the retrocession of Taiwan.

Tribal villagers are mainly the Sediq Toda. Due to the impact of the Wushe Incident, the whole village migrated to this place. This area is covered all over by the wild cherry blossom, so the tribal villagers claimed “Alang Suuwi” as the name of their village, meaning the hometown of cherry blossom.

If you have a chance to visit Chunyang Village, besides hot spring, you can also pay a visit to aboriginal weaving studio, which is full of cultural treasures and unique handicrafts.

Chunyang Tribe: 春陽部落
Wushe Incident: 霧社事件




走訪原鄉 春陽部落 編織故鄉文化寶藏

錢弘芸/南投縣

  春陽村位於南投縣仁愛鄉霧社東方約3公里地,海拔1200公尺,村內濁水溪右岸有一小溪源自北面山腰,向南切斷山脊,留下矗立於村落前端一座秀逸小山,日本時代被稱荷戈富士,高度350公尺,有步道可供遊客登山健行。

  春陽原名Gungu,因其地形彎曲,形似動物尾部而得名,日治初期稱荷戈,原為賽德克德奇塔雅族人的部落,霧社事件之後,因盛產櫻花,改名櫻社(Sakura),台灣光復後再度易名為春陽。

  部落居民主要為賽德克族道澤群(Toda),日據時期受霧社事件影響而由原居地精英村區遷移至此,因本地遍佈野山櫻,部落居民遂承襲日名「櫻社」,自稱Alang Suuwi ,意指櫻花的故鄉。

  走訪春陽部落除了有不錯的野溪溫泉可以泡泡湯外,原住民編織工作室更是文化寶藏,也造就了春陽的編織故鄉美稱。張媽媽工作室、秀花工作室…等,可以讓遊客欣賞到別出心裁的編織作品。從傳統編織藝術、創意創作到結合時尚的皮革包等,都讓人驚艷! (攝影/洪榕)
