Kinmen is an outlying island to the west of Taiwan once inhabited by as many as 130,000 soldiers. Now, that number is under 10,000. This former battlefield has now become a popular tourist destination. Jincheng Township’s Dongmen Market is responsible for feeding 75% of Kinmen’s population! With the help of Auntie Ah-Hsiao who makes a living selling stone oysters, Ah-Tsing who buys produce for soldiers, and a shop owner who collects zippers and old sewing machines, let’s take a look at the religious worship culture in Kinmen!
