Located at the piedmont of Shoushan, Kaohsiung Wude Hall (the oldest surviving wude hall in Taiwan) was established by the Kaohsiung Branch of Dai Nippon Butoku Kai (“Greater Japan Martial Virtue Society”) in 1924 and consists of many zones such as kendo (“The Way of Sword”) and judo zones that serve as sites for the police and young students to practice kendo and judo. The Kaohsiung Wude Hall accommodates approximately 100 people and features a shrine at its center. Contrary to Japanese-style butokuden, Kaohsiung Wude Hall boasts both Japanese and Western architectural features. Its Eastern Asian gable roof is covered with tiles and supported by a Western steel truss system. By contrast, its imperial crown style entrance eaves were constructed using Tuscan order concepts. Its brick walls, built using Western masonry methods, contain arrow and target-shaped reliefs. In 2004, renovation of the Kaohsiung Wude Hall was completed, where the hall is now regularly used for education promotion activities such as prayer festivals, kendo conventions, and budō festivals, making it an important local cultural building in Hamasen.
