Not far from railway station, Eastern Gate stands in the middle of a rotary. To reach there, there is an underpass. So, don’t cross the street. It is not very big like a movie set.

An old structure in the middle of some new traffic. It's a good quick stop while walking to the night markets.

The East Gate is a cute little structure you can see in center Hsinchu...but surrounded by a traffic circle fed from many, many streets. You'll have a hard time crossing to see up close, but a look from across the road seems fine for this small attraction.

When I first saw the Eastern Gate it was from across the traffic circle. However, I discovered a path that led from the river walk that passed underneath the street which led right up to the gate. The views from here were very impressive and there are several historical ruins and plaques that offer some information on the gate as well as the history of the area.

It is in the middle of a round circle where many vehicles travel around it.
The East Gate building is with a historical information.
Went to see the East Gate in the morning hours.
Did not walk back to see in the night.
When follow the tourist map to walk around, the East Gate is easily spotted.
