Camphor industry used to be the main industry in Shitan. The efforts from early settlers and remarkable development have contributed to a great success of this industry.
In memory of the glory of this industry, we used branches from camphor trees to make the bottom half of this work to remind people the significance of camphor industry both in the past and in the future. The flying wings on the upper half of this work symbolize the foundation of the camphor industry and wish to create a harmonious environment in Shitan in the future.
The old suspension bridge is the entrance for tourists to access this area. They will see the Loops of Camphor Branches before reaching this piece of work. The suspension bridge represents the current status which connects the past (Loops of Camphor Branches) and the future (Sublimation of Camphor). This camphor route takes people through different times. The design of this area wishes to have tourists think and experience the vigor of Shitan and expectations for the future.
