音楽の島・旧居留地のコロンス島 / Gulangyu Island,”Piano Island”



























































Gulangyu is a car-free island off the coast of Xiamen, Fujian province in southern China, about 2 square kilometres in area. It is home to about 20,000 people and is a domestic tourist destination.
Visitors can reach it by ferry from Xiamen Island in about 5 minutes. Gulangyu Island is renowned for its beaches and winding lanes and its varied architecture.
Xiamen (also known as Amoy) became a treaty port resulting from China’s loss in the First Opium War and the Treaty of Nanking in 1842, hence the predominantly Victorian-era style architecture throughout Gulangyu Island, where 13 countries including Great Britain, France and Japan established consulates, churches, and hospitals.
As a place of residence for Westerners during Xiamen’s colonial past, Gulangyu is famous for its architecture and for hosting China’s only piano museum, giving it the nickname of “Piano Island” or “The Town of Pianos” (鋼琴之) or “The Island of Music” (音樂之島).There are over 200 pianos on this island.
